Two full time postdoctoral associate positions are available in the
laboratory of Dr. Vivian Irish, Dept. of Molecular, Cellular and
Developmental Biology, Yale University.
Arabidopsis petal development: The successful candidate will employ
a variety of molecular genetic techniques and modeling approaches to
elucidate the dynamics of transcriptional networks controlling petal
organogenesis. Applicants should have experience in Arabidopsis
molecular genetics, QTL analyses, and/or systems biology.
Comparative analyses of flower and fruit development: The successful
candidate will examine the changing roles of key transcription
factors in regulating flower and fruit formation. This project will
focus on utilizing genetically tractable members of the Solanaceae,
and tomato in particular. Applicants should have experience in
molecular genetics and phylogenetic analyses.
For either position, a Ph.D. degree in molecular genetics, plant
biology, or related field is required. Interested applicants should
send a C.V., list of publications, brief summary of research
experience and future goals, and names and addresses of three
referees by email to Vivian Irish (Vivian.irish from yale.edu). Review of
applications will begin immediately and continue until positions are
filled. For further information on the lab interests, please see
