Laboratory of Jennifer Fletcher, Plant Gene Expression Center
A Postdoctoral Scholar-Employee position is available immediately at the =
Plant Gene Expression Center in Albany, CA to study intercellular =
signaling pathways that regulate plant organ formation. The postdoctoral =
appointment will be through the Department of Plant and Microbial =
Biology at the University of California, Berkeley. Our lab studies the =
regulatory pathways that maintain stem cell function in the shoot apical =
meristem, as well those that direct early organ patterning and polarity =
events on the meristem flanks. We use a combination of genetic, genomic, =
molecular and biochemical approaches. This position will investigate how =
several early steps in Arabidopsis leaf development are controlled by =
members of the CLE family of small polypeptide signaling molecules.

The initial appointment is for one year, with renewal based on =
