*Post-doctoral and research technician positions* (2-3) are available to
investigate the plant circadian clock in the new Division of Integrative
Biosciences and Biotechnology at Pohang University of Science and
Technology (POSTECH) in Pohang, South Korea. [Only registered users see links. ]
The successful applicants for these positions will be involved the
establishment of a new laboratory in newly renovated research space with
research opportunities to study post-translational processes, in
particular phosphorylation, controlling the circadian system in
Arabidopsis. There will also be the opportunity to initiate new genetic
screens probing into the fundamental properties of the circadian clock.
The lab will be housed in a building sharing growth facilities and other
resources with excellent, well-established plant molecular groups at
POSTECH, along with newly established labs in membrane biophysics and
chemical biology of protein-protein and lipid-protein interactions.
This is an excellent opportunity for Korean nationals interested in
initiating a career path in plant science in South Korea, but is not
limited to such individuals. Expertise in biochemistry, proteomics and
molecular biology is highly desirable. Previous experience with
Arabidopsis research is not a requirement, but very useful. Ability to
work independently and coordinately will be an important asset. Highly
motivated individuals with excellent English and Korean language and
communication skills are strongly encouraged to apply.
These positions are available in early March 2010, but there is the
possibility of preliminary training and orientation at Ohio State
University prior to positioning at POSTECH. Starting yearly salary for
post-docs will be 25,000,000 KRW to 35,000,000KRW depending on
experience; 20,000,000 to 25,000,000 KRW for technicians.
Interested applicants should send inquires and their CV, a statement of
research interests and career goals to the below address. Email
attachments are preferred.
