Default postdoctoral position in developmental genetics at UBC


available at the



We are seeking a well trained, highly motivated and enthusiastic individual to study seed coat epidermal differentiation in Arabidopsis (see Haughn G and Chaudhury A, 2005, Trends in Plant Science 10: 472-477). During differentiation, the seed coat epidermis secretes copious amounts of mucilage (pectin) into the apoplast and then produces an extensive secondary cell wall. We are using this cell type as a model system together with forward genetic analysis to understand cell wall biosynthesis (Western et al., 2000, Plant Physiology, 122: 345-355; Western et al., 2001, Plant Physiol.127: 998-1011; Western et al., 2004. Plant Physiol.134: 998-1011). Currently we are employing microarray technology to detect changes in gene expression during seed coat differentiation. The successful applicant will make use of this information and reverse genetic technology to identify candidate genes involved in the biosynthesis and secretion of cell wall components. Additional information concerning the laboratory, our department and Vancouver can be found at our Web site: [Only registered users see links. ].

Applicants must have expertise in developmental genetics of Arabidopsis thaliana and well developed skills in molecular biology techniques. Experience with cell wall biochemistry, enzymology, protein expression and/or cell biology would be highly desirable. The position is available May 1, 2007 for an initial period of one year, with a possibility of extension for up to two additional years subject to satisfactory performance and availability of resources. If interested, please send, by E-mail, a cover letter outlining research experience and interests, a curriculum vitae, and the names and phone numbers of three referees by March 31, 2007 to Professor George Haughn, Department of Botany, University of British Columbia, 6270 University Blvd., Vancouver, B.C., V6T 1Z4, Canada; TEL (604) 822‑3554, FAX (604) 822‑6089; E‑mail: [Only registered users see links. ].

In accordance with Canadian immigration requirements priority will be given to Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada. UBC hires on the basis of merit and is committed to employment equity. We encourage all qualified persons to apply.
