A postdoctoral position is available immediately to study DNA repair and
genome instability using Arabidopsis as a model organism. This initiative is
in collaboration with Dr. H. Wang, a plant biochemist in the Department of
Biochemistry, to investigate plant genes involved in DNA repair and cell
cycle regulation, and to examine transgenic plants altered in the activity
and expression of these genes.  The promise of this research is that plant
is more tolerant to genome instability than animals, whereas knockout
animals with DNA repair genes often result in embryonic lethality.  This
research project will combine knowledge and experience learnt in model yeast
and plant and aims at high-quality publications.  It will also allow the
trainee to develop independent research interests in the area.

Candidates with recent Ph.D. degree and background in plant biochemistry,
cell biology, molecular biology and genetics are encouraged to apply. Annual
salary begins with $32,000 - $35,000 based on experience.  Please send CV
and names of three references with contact information to:
