A PhD studentship is available from October 2001 in the research group
of Dr Claire Grierson at the University of Bristol School of Biological
Sciences.

The team researches root hair growth and development in Arabidopsis,
focusing on how genes contribute to and control the growth of this
agronomically important cell (Plant Cell, 2000, 12:1961-1974). The
student will investigate how plants regulate development in response to
external cues. They will use existing mutants, transgenic lines, green
fluorescent protein fusions, DNA sequencing and PCR to characterise and
identify new genes involved in the response of root hair growth to
changes in the local environment.

Dr Grierson and her research group recently moved to the University of
Bristol as part of a major investment in plant science that includes
three new lecturers (Drs C Grierson, K Halliday, and S Hiscock) and a
Professor (K Edwards). The group works in newly refurbished, well
equipped laboratories with four purpose-built Arabidopsis growth rooms.
