Postdoctoral Position
Boyce Thompson Institute

Cornell University, Ithaca NY

	A postdoctoral research position is available immediately to characterize the
genetic, molecular and physiological aspects of aluminum tolerance in
Arabidopsis.  Aluminum toxicity in plants is a global problem and a critical
issue in the acid soils of the world.  Aluminum is a major element in the
earth's crust, but is only soluble in acid soils.  The basis for aluminum
toxicity and the mechanisms of tolerance are poorly understood.  We are engaged
in a research project to isolate and characterize aluminum tolerant mutants in
Arabidopsis with the goal of understanding the mechanism of Al tolerance in
molecular terms.  Two tolerant mutant lines have been identified, and the
successful candidate will participate in an ongoing effort to map and clone the
genes and/or to characterize the ion transport properties of the mutants. 
Previous experience in molecular biology and/or ion transport physiology is
desirable.  The position has a minimum starting salary of $22,000.  The
position is funded by the EPA and part of a joint project between Stephen
Howell, Boyce Thompson Institute and Leon Kochian, U.S. Plant, Soil and
Nutrition Laboratory, Cornell.  Interested parties should send their CVs and
three letters of reference to:  Stephen H. Howell, Boyce Thompson Institute,
Tower Road, Ithaca NY 14853.  Fax: (607) 254-1242.  Inquiries can be sent by
EMail.  The Boyce Thompson Institute and Cornell University are EEO/AA
employers.  Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
