A postdoctoral position is available to study gravitropic sensing in
Arabidopsis. The specific project depends in part on the skills and interests
of the successful candidate. Possible areas include: (1) the study of
environmental parameters that affect determinations of sensitivity, (2) genetic
and physiological analyses of the extent to which existing and putative mutants
have a gravitropic phenotype, and (3) transformations using various genes and
promotors to analyze hypotheses of sensing.
A background in plant physiology/genetics and/or molecular biology is required.
Funding is from NASA for up to 3 years. Interviews will continue until a
suitable candidate is found, but the position is available as early as March,
1995. Send a CV and 3 reference letters to Fred Sack, Department of Plant
Biology, Ohio State University, 1735 Neil Avenue, Columbus Ohio 43210. Phone:
