A Postdoctoral Fellow position at the School of Biochemistry and Molecular
Biology is available for a highly motivated scientist interested in
understanding how microRNAs regulate gene expression and development in
plants. The applicant will join a small team that is using genetic and
molecular approaches studying the miR159/GAMYB system in Arabidopsis. Some
of the currents aims of the group include defining the number of genes
miR159 targets, mechanisms by which miR159 regulate their targets, structure
/function analysis of miR159 and expression and regulation of the MIR159
genes. The appointee will be expected to lead projects in one (or more) of
these areas using genetic, molecular and genomic approaches. There will be
opportunities to supervise other laboratory staff and students as well as
opportunities to collaborate with scientists from CSIRO, Division of Plant
Industry. Excellent communication and organisational skills are essential as
is a background in molecular biology. Experience with small RNA and
Arabidopsis would be an advantage. 


Candidates should have, or expect shortly to receive, a PhD in molecular
