A postdoctoral position is available to work on the phytochrome-interacting
basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factor (PIF1) that is involved in
controlling photomorphogenesis in Arabidopsis. The research involves
understanding the molecular function of PIF1, and identifying and functionally
characterizing PIF1 interacting proteins and PIF1 target genes using
biochemical, genetic and genomic approaches. Position will be availible
starting Fall 2003. Applicants should have a recent Ph.D. in molecular
genetics or biochemistry. Prior experience in Arabidospsis is advantageous but
not essential. Salary and benefits will be competitve and commensurate with
experience. Interested applicants should send a CV, brief summary of research
experience, and names and e-mail addresses of at least three referees
preferably by email to huq at uclink.berkeley.edu.
