Postdoc Position in Arabidopsis Nitrogen Regulatory Networks

Thu Jun 14 19:39:23 EST 2001

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Nigel 
Crawford in the Division of Biology at Univ. of California at San 
Diego to work on regulatory networks that control nitrogen metabolism 
in Arabidopsis.  The research will focus on the signal transduction 
pathways and regulatory genes that control nitrate uptake and 
reduction using molecular genetic approaches and that incorporate 
microarray analyses.  An initial microarray analysis of 
nitrate-induced genes has been published from our lab showing novel 
regulatory and signal transduction genes that are responsive to 
Wang, R., K. Guegler, S.T. LaBrie and N.M. Crawford (2000) Genomic 
analysis of a nutrient response in Arabidopsis reveals diverse 
expression patterns and novel metabolic and potential regulatory 
genes that are induced by nitrate. Plant Cell 12: 1491-1510

Position will start early Fall, 2001.  Candidates should have a Ph.D. 
and first-authored publications in internationally recognized 
journals.  To apply, please email a CV, statement of research 
experience and names of three references (please include email, 
address and phone number) to ncrawford at ucsd.edu.
