University of California, Riverside ポスドク募集

植物−ウィルス・昆虫間相互作用の研究 ポスドク募集


Seeking two postdoctoral researchers to study the molecular biology and transmission of criniviruses, and the genetic basis of plant virus-host interactions.

Position #1 (available immediately or until filled):
The major responsibility of this position is to complete the molecular characterization of a crinivirus that we have recently isolated, and to initiate studies on the molecular biology of this virus. There will also be opportunities to participate in studies aimed at identifying molecular determinants mediating insect vector transmission of viruses and the molecular basis of virus-vector interaction. Interested individuals should have a good knowledge of Virology, Molecular Biology, Plant Biology, Protein Chemistry and cloning techniques. Experience working with insects and insect vector transmission of plant viruses is not essential.

Position #2 (available in January, 2008):
The major responsibility of this position is to characterize the genetic basis for novel forms of resistance to insect transmitted virus diseases in plants. The study employs biological and molecular approaches as well as existing Expressed Sequence Tag (EST) microarray technology to identify and study plant genes that are involved in mediating disease resistance in response to viral pathogens. The discovery of previously unidentified antiviral genes could open doors to potential infection blocking strategies aimed at managing virus diseases. Background in molecular biology is required. Experience in EST expression analysis is desirable. Candidates with a background in plant viruses and plant resistance to viruses are also encouraged to apply.

Include a letter of application, curriculum vitae, and contact information for three professional references.
