A two-year postdoc position on cytosolic pH regulation is available in the Department of Botany at Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, OK, USA.

The long term goal of the project is to develop a quantitative understanding of the molecular components that contribute to cytosolic pH regulation in higher plants. Intracellular pH recordings will be performed on intact roots of Arabidopsis and Zea mays by measuring fluorescence from ratiometric pH indicators with a wide field ratio fluorescence imaging system and a confocal laser scanning microscope. As pH indicators fluorescein derivatives (like BCECF) and recombinantly expressed (in Arabidopsis) pH sensitive GFPs will be used.

Candidates should have experience in fluorescence spectroscopy on living cells using a wide field imaging system and / or a CLSM. Documented ability to communicate effectively in English both in writing and spoken language is required. The position is available starting April 1, 2009.
