Henrik Stotz

Department of Horticulture
Oregon State University
Corvallis, OR  97331


Faculty Research Assistant; full-time, 12-month, fixed-term position with 
reappointment at the discretion of the Department Head.  Anticipated start 
date is July 1, 2005.  Salary is competitive, and benefits package includes 
several options for health/dental/life insurance, retirement, as well as a 
new program of reduced tuition for dependants (some restrictions apply).

The purpose of this position is to study genetic mechanisms of oxalate 
toxicity in Arabidopsis.  This research is part of the USDA-ARS National 
Sclerotinia Initiative (www.whitemoldresearch.com) designed to enhance the 
disease resistance of plants.  Because oxalate interferes with the 
oxidative burst and interacts with calcium, insights into cellular 
signaling are likely.   For further information about current research 
projects, visit www.science.oregonstate.edu/~stotzhe/index.html.


B.S. degree, M.S. preferred, in genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, 
or microbiology.  Research lab experience required.  Preferred 
qualifications include experience with Arabidopsis mutant screens and a 
demonstrable commitment to promoting and enhancing diversity.

Salary and Duration:

Salary will be commensurate with experience.  This is a fixed-term 
appointment with renewal at the discretion of the Department Head.


This position is located in the Department of Horticulture at Oregon State 
University (http://oregonstate.edu/dept/hort/).  OSU is one of only two 
American universities to hold the Land Grant, Sea Grant, Sun Grant, and 
Space Grant designation and is a Carnegie Doctoral/ Research-Extensive 
university. OSU is located in Corvallis, a community of 53,000 people 
situated in the Willamette Valley between Portland and Eugene. Ocean 
beaches, lakes, rivers, forests, high desert, the rugged Cascade and Coast 
Ranges, and the urban amenities of the Portland metropolitan area are all 
within a 100-mile drive of Corvallis. Approximately 15,700 undergraduate 
and 3,400 graduate students are enrolled at OSU, including 2,600 U.S.

multiculturalism, and community. We actively engage in recruiting and 
retaining a diverse workforce and student body that includes members of

leadership opportunities for people interested in promoting and enhancing 
diversity, nurturing creativity, and building community.
