A manager / scientist position is open to lead and coordinate the NSF2010-funded project dedicated to the development of novel methodologies for the purification and characterization of affinity tagged protein as well as RNA-protein complexes. 

Research responsibilities include planning, conducting as well as supervising experiments involving extensive protein complex purification and characterization, interfacing with MS facility personnel, vector construction, transgenic plant production and tracking, disseminating the materials, maintaining the web database as well as preparing reports and manuscripts for publication. Training / instructional responsibilities will include the administration of a new laboratory course that is closely interfaced with the research component of the project. The publication record of high quality that illustrates the proficiency in the above technologies as well as excellent leadership / interpersonal skills are essential. Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience. 

The focus of the lab is on posttranscriptional events in gene expression. Lab publications include  Cell 131:1340-1353 (2007), RNA 14:66-77 (2008), EMBO J  25:4253-4256 (2006), Trends Plant Sci   10:347-353 (2005), RNA  10:1200-1214 (2004), RNA   9:1476-1490 (2003), Genetics 163: 311-319 (2003), Curr Biol  11:1207-1214 (2001).
