Default Postdoctoral Position/Plant Developmental Biology

University of Washington, Seattle

A postdoctoral position is available to study Arabidopsis
receptor-kinase (RK) mediated signal transduction and development.
The Torii laboratory studies modes of action and signal transduction
of Arabidopsis receptor kinase ERECTA. Recently, we have found that
a synergistic interaction of the Arabidopsis ERECTA-family receptor
kinases regulate organ size and flower development/patterning via
promoting cell proliferation. This RK family appears to play a
critical role in specific type of cell division. A successful
candidate will investigate the cellular- and developmental mechanisms
by which the ERECTA-family RKs regulate organ growth, and genetic and
biochemical interaction of ERECTA-family RKs with potential
components of signaling pathway that have already been isolated in my

For recent publications see:

Torii, K.U. (2000) Current Opinion in Plant Biology 3: 361-367.

Candidates must have an excellent communication skill and strong
background in molecular biology and/or biochemistry. Salary is
commensurate with qualifications and experience. Ph.D. in molecular
genetics, developmental biology, biochemistry, or related field is
required. Previous experience with Arabidopsis is a plus but not
required. The position can be started as early as May 2004. Please
send a letter outlining your research interests, current curriculum
vitae, and a name and e-mail address of three referees to:
