Postdoctoral Position Available

  Genomic Analysis of Transcriptional Regulation during Carpel Margin =20=

Meristem Development in Arabidopsis

An NSF-funded postdoctoral position to study the development of the =20
Carpel Margin Meristem (CMM) in Arabidopsis is available in the =20
laboratory of Dr. Bob Franks in the Department of Genetics at North =20
Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC.

The CMM is a vital meristem that gives rise to the ovules, the =20
precursors of the seeds. The postdoctoral fellow will employ a variety =20=

of molecular, genetic, and genomic approaches to clarify the functions =20=

of the SEUSS, LEUNIG and AINTEGUMENTA genes in the patterning of the =20
adaxial carpel margin. See Plant Physiol. 2008 v146(3):1165-81.

A Ph.D. in biology, genetics, molecular biology or equivalent is =20
required. Previous experience with Chromatin IP, whole genome =20
expression analyses and/or yeast-two-hybrid assays will be directly =20
relevant to the goals of the project. Additional experience with in =20
situ hybridization, microscopy, and molecular genetic analysis of =20
development is desirable.

NCSU=92s location in the Research Triangle Area (within a half hour =20
drive of Duke University, and UNC, Chapel Hill as well as Syngenta, =20
BASF Plant Sciences, Monsanto and Bayer CropScience) engenders =20
excellent opportunities for career development and collaborative =20
research projects. The North Carolina Plant Molecular Biology =20
Consortium provides additional opportunities for multi-campus =20
interaction with a monthly seminar and annual conference.

APPLICATION: Applicants should submit curriculum vitae, list of =20
publications, a short statement of interests and future goals and the =20=

names, phone numbers and e-mail addresses of three references to:

Dr. Bob Franks
3510 Gardner Hall
