A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the laboratory of
Dr. Jianping Hu at the MSU-DOE Plant Research Laboratory, Michigan
State University. The successful candidate will join a
multi-disciplinary team of investigators and use a systems biology
approach (proteomics, bioinformatics, cell biology, and reverse
genetics) to study peroxisomal protein networks in Arabidopsis.
The applicant must have a PhD degree in biochemistry, molecular
biology, genetics, or a related field. Prior experience with plant
biochemistry, cell fractionation, and organelle isolation, as
demonstrated by peer-reviewed publications in international journals
is required. A strong interest in bioinformatic analysis is expected.
The selected candidate will also work closely with the labs of Drs
Andreas Weber (Plant Biology, Michigan State U.) and Laura Olsen
(MCDB, U. Michigan).
This research is funded by Arabidopsis 2010 (NSF). Funding is
available for two years beginning 10/1/2006 with the possibility of
extension for an additional two years. Interested applicants should
email a CV, a brief statement of research experience, and names and
contact information of three references to Dr. Jianping Hu
(<mailto:huji at msu.edu>huji at msu.edu).
