<x-flowed>Postdoc in flavonoid metabolism at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and
State University

A postdoctoral position is available for two years in the Department
of Biology at Virginia Tech to work on flavonol biosynthesis in
Arabidopsis.  The project aims to determine the role of flavonoid
3'-hydroxylase and six flavonol synthase isozymes in controlling flux
into the flavonol branch pathway of flavonoid biosynthesis.  The work
will involve the construction and analysis of transgenic plants to
address this question and to begin to assess the biological functions
of specific flavonols in plants.  Analysis of protein interactions
with other flavonoid enzymes may also be initiated.  A Ph.D. degree
in a relevant area and experience in molecular biology are required.
Virginia Tech is a land-grant university located in Blacksburg, a
college town in the beautiful Appalachian mountains.  Virginia Tech
