John Browse, Institute of Biological Chemistry
Washington State University

Molecular-Genetics of Jasmonate Signaling
Metabolic Engineering of Oilseeds

I am looking for three well-trained, eager and imaginative scientists to 
join two projects in my laboratory.  One project aims to engineer the 
pathways of lipid synthesis in oilseeds to produce improved vegetable 
oils.  The second is an investigation of core jasmonate signaling during 
stamen and pollen development in Arabidopsis.

I am not looking for specific experience in any of these areas so much as 
wanting to identify well-trained, highly-motivated, and enthusiastic 
researchers who will make important and exciting discoveries in these 
research areas.  Applicants should have experience in biochemistry, 
genetics and/or molecular biology but prior work with plants is not 
essential.  My laboratory of 15 graduate students and postdocs already has 
projects on fatty acid and lipid synthesis, and on jasmonate 
signaling.  You can find out more about my research program through 
http://ibc.wsu.edu/research/browse/index.htm.  and PubMed.  The Institute 
of Biological Chemistry at Washington State University is an excellent and 
very supportive research environment (http://ibc.wsu.edu).

The positions will be available from March (but the start date is flexible) 
for an initial period of one year.  Reappointment for up to three years is 
expected.  Salary will be commensurate with experience.  Review of 
applications will begin immediately, and continue until the positions are 
filled.  Send curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests and 
career goals, representative publications, and three letters of reference to:
