University of Washington, Seattle

A postdoctoral position (or a research scientist assistant position)  
is available immediately to investigate receptor kinase signal  
transduction pathways specifying aboveground organ morephogenesis and  
epidermal (stomatal) patterning.

A successful candidate will use integrated approaches of confocal  
(time-lapse) imaging, biochemistry and molecular genetics to  
investigate how cell-cell signals mediated by the peptide ligands will  
translate into cell proliferation and cell-type differentiation. See  
our references, such as Guseman et al. (2010) Development 137, 1731-;  
Pillitteri et al. (2007) Nature 445, 501-; Hara et al. (2007) Genes  
Dev 15, 1720-; Shpak et al. (2005) Science 309, 290-.

A candidate must be proficient in biochemistry and live imaging  
techniques at tissue-, cellular- or subcellular levels.  Candidates  
with strong quantitative skills are highly desired.  Previous  
experience in Arabidopsis/plants is not required but a plus.  A  
candidate must be strong in communication- and analytical skills,  
focused and motivated, and able to work as a team as well as  

Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience (based on  
the NIH scale according to the University Guideline). The position  
will be initially available for one year, with the renewal based on  
the performance and funding availability. The successful candidate  
will be encouraged to apply for independent fellowships.  Due to the  
guideline of the funding agency, preference will be given to  
candidates within two years of postdoctoral experience.
