A postdoctoral position is available in Haiyang Wang's Laboratory at
the Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research, Cornell University.
The Wang Laboratory studies the molecular mechanisms of phytochrome
signaling in Arabidopsis and crop species. Projects include studying
two novel transposase-derived transcription factors in regulating
phyA signaling (Lin et al., 2007, Science, 318:1302-1305) and
regulation of HFR1 (a bHLH transcription factor) function by
posttranslational modifications (ubiquitination and phosphorylation)
(Yang et al., Plant Cell 17:804-821; Yang et al., Plant J.
43:131-141; Yang and Wang, Plant J. 47:564-576). Successful
candidates should have a Ph.D. in molecular genetics or biochemistry,
be self-motivated and capable of independent research and
experimental designs. A strong background in cell biology or
bioinformatics will be a plus. Reasonable levels of writing and
verbal communicating skills in English are required.
To apply, send cover letter detailing research experience and
achievements, curriculum vitae (including course highlights and
technical skills), and the names of three references. Please indicate
the job code BTI #2008-06 in your application. For more information
