Dear Arabidopsis scientist

A postdoctoral position is available at RIKEN Plant Science Center, Japan
from August 2000. RIKEN is located near Tokyo and about 20 min by train from
downtown Tokyo.  More than 2000 researchers are working at RIKEN institute
and we have over 200 non-Japanese researchers. Please see our homepage.
The project is related to (1) regulation of GA and ABA biosynthesis and
signal transduction in seeds (Arabidopsis and tomato) and (2) production of
useful secondary metabolites in seeds. The project will prolong for 5 years.
The positions are available for minimum 2 years and extension is possible
till the end of March 2005. Those who are interested in this position,
please contact Dr. Yuji Kamiya by e-mail
