A postdoctoral position is available to study signal transduction in plant
development. CR4 is a receptor kinase critical for the differentiation of
maize leaf epidermis (Becraft et al., 1996, Science 273: 1406) and a
presumptive cognate gene has recently been isolated from Arabidopsis.
Current objectives are to identify additional components and targets of the
CR4 signal transduction pathway. Funding is available for 3 years with a
beginning salary of $26,000. Applicants must have a strong background in
molecular biology. Send letter, curriculum vitae and contact information
for three references to Philip Becraft, Zoology and Genetics Dept., 2116
