John Browse's Laboratory
Institute of Biological Chemistry
Washington State University

I am looking for three well-trained, determined and imaginative 
researchers to join current members of my laboratory in three related 
projects investigating key aspects of lipid metabolism in plants.

1.  Metabolic Engineering of Oilseeds:  This research is part of a 
seven-laboratory collaboration that seeks to engineer the production 
of useful chemicals in oilseeds.

2.  Synthesis and Action of Jasmonate Hormone:  The current focus of 
this project is on distinguishing the growth inhibition and defense 
responses to jasmonate signaling.

3.  Lipid Structure and Photosynthetic Function:  This project uses 
phenomics approaches to discover emergent phenotypes in mutants of 
Arabidopsis with alterations in chloroplast lipid composition.

Applicants should have experience in biochemistry, genetics and/or 
molecular biology, but prior work with plants or with lipids is not 
essential. It is more important that you are ready to develop and 
succeed with your chosen research project.  You will have excellent 
opportunities to collaborate and publish with 10 other members of my 
laboratory and to develop your project as the basis of your future 
career. You can find out more about my research program through 
PubMed and other sites. The Institute of Biological Chemistry at 
Washington State University is an excellent research environment for 
the work that is planned (http://cahnrs-cms.wsu.edu/ibc/).

The positions will be available from May, 2014 (but the start dates 
are flexible) for an initial period of one year.  Reappointment for 
up to three years is possible.  Salary will be commensurate with 
experience.  Review of applications will begin immediately, and 
continue until the positions are filled.  Send curriculum vitae, a 
statement of research interests and career goals, representative 
publications, and three letters of reference to:  John Browse, email:
