Post-Doctoal Position
Arabidopsis Signal Trnsduction

A post-doctoral position is available immediately in the laboratory of
Mannie Liscum at the University of Missouri-Columbia.  This project deals
with the reverse genetic analysis of the NPH3/RPT2 gene family in
Arabidopsis.  This large family of genes (>15 members) encode novel
proteins, however both NPH3 and RPT2 have been shown genetically to be
required for ealy signal transduction during response to phototropi
stimuli.  We hypothesize that this novel family of proteins function as
molecular scaffolds to mediate the assembly/stability of signal
transduction components in a variety of signal-response systems (i.e., not
limited to phototropism).  A variety of approaches will be used to address
the biological roles of members of this family, including isolation of
knock-out mutants via T-DNA and transposon mutagenesis, generation of
mutants through anti-sense construction, and transgenic complementation of
(uncloned) mutnts with known map-positions.  Once such molecularly
identified "resources" are in hand, the candidate will initiate
physiological and biochemical analyses.  (Additional information about the
Liscum lab can be found at:

Minimum requirements include a Ph.D. in molecular biology, biochemistry,
genetics, or biological science.  Experience with Arabidopsis is not
required but will be an advantage to a candidate.
