<x-flowed>Postdoctoral Scientist:
Molecular Basis of Pathogen Recognition and Defense Activation in Plants

A postdoctoral position is available to study the molecular basis of
pathogen recognition and defense activation in plants.  We are
examining NB-LRR R gene products, R-like transmembrane LRR-kinases,
the pathogen-derived ligands that elicit defenses, and the proteins
with which these R gene products and pathogen ligands interact.  We
work primarily with Arabidopsis but also with Brassica and soybean.
Long term goals are to understand structure-function relationships
that govern plant defense activation, and generation of genes that
encode novel pathogen recognition capacity.

One position is available this Summer; an additional position may be
available in the next year.  Our laboratory is part of a large and
very dynamic biological sciences research community at UW-Madison.
And, Madison is a great place to live!

Please supply a detailed C.V., names of three references (including
phone, address and e-mail information), and a brief description of
your present work, timetable for taking a new position, and reasons
for applying.
