<x-flowed>Lab: Mackey. Post-doc Position, Ohio State University,
Columbus, OH, USA.
Postdoctoral positions are available to study the action of bacterial
effector proteins in Arabidopsis. Gram-negative bacterial pathogens use
Type III secretion to inject effector proteins inside cells of the plant.
An effector can manipulate a plant in a way that enhances virulence of the
pathogen. However, in a plants that expresses an appropriate resistance
protein, the same effector can induce an immune response. Current research
focuses on the molecular mechanisms by which effectors induce either
virulence or resistance. Experience in molecular biology, biochemistry, or
genetics is needed. Interested candidates send a CV, including names and
email addresses of three references, to David Mackey, Ohio State
