Postdoc Position in Arabidopsis Nitrogen Regulatory Networks

Thu Jun 14 19:39:00 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 nitrate:
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.
