Postdoctoral Position
Vanderbilt University
Nashville, Tennessee, USA

Subject to final approval of funding, a postdoctoral position is
available July 1, 2002, to study the interface between circadian
rhythms, photoperiodism, and calcium fluxes. We have previously shown
that basal free calcium levels are controlled by the circadian clock in
plants (Science 269: 1863-1865) and have further studied its role in
controlling gene expression (PNAS 96: 11659-11663). We have another
paper in press (with PLANT CELL) that examines dark-stimulated calcium
fluxes in chloroplasts. This position is to assess the role of circadian
calcium fluxes in photoperiodism and phototransduction. A secondary
project is to adapt our new method for measuring protein interactions
(PNAS 96: 151-156) to plants. Experience with plant molecular genetics
is necessary; experience with calcium-related research in plants is
desirable. For more information about my laboratory, see our website:
Salary will be consistent with the NIH scale. Interested applicants
should send a current CV including the names of three references to: Dr.
Carl Johnson, Dept. of Biology, Box 1812-B, Vanderbilt University,
Nashville, TN  37235 USA.
