University of Montreal, Montreal, Canada
A postdoctoral position is available immediately to work on the
development of a new functional genomic approach to identify and
characterize protein-protein interactions in plants. This
approach is based on a Protein fragment Complementation Assay
(PCA) developed recently in prokaryotes and mammalian cells (see
Pelletier et al., PNAS 95, 12141-6 (1998); Pelletier et al.,
Nature Biotechnology 17, 683-690 (1999). The candidate will
develop transient expression assays in protoplasts and tissue
explants and will be in charge of plant transformation. The
candidate will also use and develop fluorescence-based assays in
protoplasts and in whole plant tissues. A strong background in
plant tissue culture is required and preference will be given to
candidates having also experience with cell biology techniques.
The annual salary will be from $27,000 to $32,000 (CDN)
depending on experience, and the initial appointment will be for
one year with a possibility of renewal for two additional years.
Please send (preferably via e-mail) your application with
curriculum vitae including the names, phone numbers, and e-mail
addresses of three references to Dr. Normand Brisson, Department
of Biochemistry, University of Montreal, PO Box 6128, Station
Centre-ville, Montreal Qc, Canada H3C 3J7.
