Functional Genomics of Maize Promoters
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

A postdoctoral research position is available immediately to study
promoter activities at the molecular, genetic, and biochemical levels
using the maize seed as a model system.   The project involves the
generation and analysis of promoter-reporter gene constructs in
transgenic maize and the development of high-throughput proteomics
methods for the biochemical characterization of DNA-protein
interactions.  These techniques will be used to monitor how maize
promoter activities change during seed development and among different
genotypes.  Candidates should have a strong background in genetics,
biochemistry, and molecular biology.  Experience in plant transformation
or the biochemical analysis of DNA-protein interactions in any system is
desirable.  Demonstrated oral and written communication skills and the
ability to interact and communicate effectively within a collaborative
research group are required. This is a full-time position funded for two
years with a salary commensurate with qualifications and experience.
Interested individuals should submit a letter of application outlining
research experience and interests, a curriculum vitae, and the names,
addresses, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses of three references
to Dr. Stephen Moose, University of Illinois, Department of Crop
Sciences, 389 ERML, 1201 W. Gregory Drive, Urbana, IL  61801.  Phone:
217-244-6308, FAX: 217-333-4582, Email: smoose at  Evaluation of
applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is
filled.  The University of Illinois is an equal opportunity/affirmative
action employer.

If you are planning to attend the Plant and Animal Genome meeting in San

Diego, please contact me before the conference to arrange for a meeting.
