Auxin transport in arabidopsis roots
University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA
Bard College at Simon's Rock, Great Barrington, MA
The labs of Eric Kramer (Bard College at Simon's Rock) and Tobias
Baskin (University of Massachusetts, Amherst) have a position for a
postdoctoral fellow. Kramer and Baskin have a joint, NSF-sponsored
grant to study transport in the arabidopsis root, with a focus on
auxin. Highest priority will be given to candidates with demonstrated
skill in plant cell biology and microscopy. Experience with
arabidopsis is NOT required (for all you maize folks). Experience
with or willingness to learn mathematical/computer simulation
techniques is preferred, but not essential. The postdoc will live
near Amherst, MA, with occasional trips to Simon's Rock. The position
starts Sept 1, 2008, and screening applicants will begin immediately.
Initial appointment is for one year, with the possibility of renewal
for up to three more years. Persons from groups under-represented in
the sciences are strongly encouraged to apply.
Send a single PDF file containing a cover letter, CV, publication
list, and the names/emails of three references to Dr. Eric Kramer,
ekramer from simons-rock.edu.
