Postdoctoral Position/Research Scientist position: Transcriptional
profiling and transcription-factor control of plant development
University of Washington, Seattle

A postdoctoral position or a research scientist position is available
immediately to study transcriptional profiling and function of
transcription factors controlling stomatal differentiation. Our lab is
studying receptor-kinase signal transduction controlling stomatal
patterning and differentiation (Shpak et al. 2005 Science 309:290-293;
Hara et al. 2007 Genes & Dev 15:1720-1725). We have recently
discovered ‘key switch’ transcription factors that direct a series of
cell-state transition leading to stomatal differentiation, and further
identified additional transcription factors regulating this process
(Pillitteri et al. 2007 Nature 445:501-505; our unpublished results).
A successful candidate will study how these newly identified
transcription factors control cell-type differentiation, as well as
initiate transcriptional profiling for specific molecular signatures
associated with stomatal stem cell state.

Candidates must have excellent communication skills, ability to conduct
research independently and as a team, and must have strong backgrounds
in molecular biology, genetics, and biochemistry. A strong
experimentalist with proficiency in Affymetrix array analysis and
bioinformatics is desirable. Previous experience with Arabidopsis is a

Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience. The position
is initially for one year, with possibility of extension based on
performance and funding availability. The successful candidate will be
encouraged to apply for independent fellowships. Due to the guideline
of University of Washington, candidates must be less than four years of
postgraduate. For the research scientist position (which requires
B.Sc. or equivalent degree with a year of research experience),
candidate must have a legal visa status to be employed in the US.

Please send a cover letter outlining your research interests and career
goals, current curriculum vitae, and a name and e-mail address of three
