Please, diffuse broadly!
Thank you
Fred Revers

A *2 year postdoctoral position* is available to conduct identification 
of *plant proteins involved in long distance movement of plant viruses*. 
  Two viruses displaying different plant tissue tropism (potyvirus and 
polerovirus genera) will be the focus of this study. By constructing a 
cDNA library after collection of companion cells by *laser dissection 
*and screening the library using the yeast two-hybrid system with 
appropriate viral proteins, candidates potentially involved in virus 
systemic movement will be identified. Functional analysis of the 
proteins will be undertaken. This project should shed light on a 
non-completely elucidated process which is a major step in viral plant 
dissemination. A *data base* of genes expressed in companion cells will 
also be engineered and will represent an important tool for the 
scientific community studying phloem functions.

This project is part of a main ANR project conducted in collaboration 
with *three laboratories*: *IBMP-CNRS in Strasbourg* (Véronique 
Ziegler-Graff), *INRA in Bordeaux* (Frédéric Revers) and *INRA in 
Colmar* (Véronique Brault).
Applicants should have a PhD and good knowledge in molecular biology.
Skills in virology (plant or animal) is desirable but not obligatory.
Preference will be given to candidates with experience in engineering 
cDNA libraries and bioinformatics. Applications will be accepted until 
the position is filled

Start date: September 2009
Duration: 2 years
Monthly gross wage: 2200 euros
Submit: a complete cv (including names of three references)
