Postdoctoral Research Associates:   Signal Transduction and Cell Walls
Department of Biochemistry and Cell Biology
Rice University

Postdoctoral positions are available to participate in research 
focused on determining the mechanisms by which plants sense 
environmental stresses, transduce signals into cells and regulate 
cellular and organismal alterations.  Using transgenic Arabidopsis 
expressing the luciferase reporter under the control of the 
mechano-sensitive TCH  regulatory region, we are conducting mutant 
screens to identify essential components responsible for perception 
and response to diverse environmental stresses.  In addition, we are 
taking an integrative approach to elucidate the physiological and 
cellular functions of the xyloglucan endotransglucosylase/hydrolase 
(XTH) gene family of Arabidopsis. XTHs are capable of modifying a 
major component of the wall and yet the physiological functions of 
these enzymes are not yet understood.  See: 
http://www.bioc.rice.edu/~braam/projects/index.html for more 

A strong background in molecular biology, biochemistry and genetics 
is preferred.  Only highly motivated individuals with proven track 
records should apply.  Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, a 
cover letter describing research experience and interests, and the 
names and email addresses for at least three references to: 
braam at rice.edu.
