Post-Doctoral Fellow (Arabidopsis Functional Evolutionary Genetics)

Post-Doctoral Fellow (Arabidopsis Functional Evolutionary Genetics)

Genetics & Biotechnology Lab , Biochemistry Dept & Biosciences Institute, University College Cork

The lab of Dr. Charles Spillane is seeking a highly motivated postdoc to work on functional evolutionary genomics of rapidly evolving genes within the Arabidopsis genome. The successful applicant will work within a small team of Arabidopsis researchers investigating genetics and epigenetics of reproduction/seed development. We seek enthusiastic and highly motivated candidates with excellent and proven (as evidenced by publications) skills in plant (Arabidopsis) molecular genetics, functional genomics, molecular evolution, bioinformatics, DIC/fluorescence microscopy and/or in situ hybridisation in Arabidopsis thaliana. The project is funded for three years, and will build on ongoing collaborations with other Arabidopsis groups, including the group of Prof. Karl Schmid (Dept of Plant Biology and Forest Genetics, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), Uppsala, Sweden ).

Prospective applicants should send an e-mail outlining your research interest and motivations, including; (a) your C.V. (please list publications and experimental skills) & (b) contact details and e-mail addresses for 3 referees to: Dr. Charles Spillane, Genetics & Biotechnology Lab, Biochemistry Dept & Biosciences Institute, University College Cork, Cork, Ireland. E-mail: c.spillane@ucc.ie

Deadline: June 16th 2008 (or until suitable applicant is recruited).
