A Postdoctoral Scientist Position at the Plant Sciences Center, RIKEN
A postdoctoral scientist position is available from April 2008 to study the
size and ploidy control in plants. The successful candidate will
characterize novel loss-of-function or gain-of-function mutants in
Arabidopsis that display various developmental defects associated with
ploidy. The research will be conducted in Keiko Sugimoto's lab
([Only registered users see links. ]) at the RIKEN Plant
Science Center situated in Yokohama, Japan. RIKEN Plant Science Center has
state-of-the-art facilities for genome, proteome and metabolome research.
Applicants should have a PhD in plant molecular biology, developmental
genetics, or cell biology. Experience in Arabidopsis molecular genetics or
cell biology is highly desirable. This post is for up to 3 years, pending on
the annual assessment. Please visit the RIKEN website for further detail.
