Postdoctoral position (2005-3)
Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research, Ithaca, NY
A postdoctoral position is available in a group studying the
arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis in a model legume, Medicago
truncatula. The project will use laser dissection and cell capture
techniques coupled with transcriptional profiling to monitor gene
expression in the cortical cells of mycorrhizal roots. Gene
expression profiling will be achieved using M. truncatula
oligonucleotide-based arrays. The goals are to identify genes whose
expression is associated with arbuscule development.
Applicants must have a strong publication record and
demonstrated expertise in molecular biology. Applicants with
experience in both molecular biology and cell biology are preferred.
