Job Type/Schedule This position is full-time and works approximatelyu00a037.5 hours per week. Department Name/Job Location This position is in the Department of Biology. This position is for the Danforth Campus. Essential Functions Postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Lucia Strader at **MEMBERS ONLY**SIGN UP NOW***. in St. Louis. The successful candidates will focus on one of the following areas of research: Roles for IBA-derived auxin in plant development: Indole-3-butyric acid, or IBA, is an inactive auxin precursor whose transport throughout the plant and conversion to the active hormone is critical to auxin function. Despite the importance of IBA to plant growth, the mechanisms controlling IBA input into the level of available auxin are not well understood. As a part of an NSF-funded project, the successful candidate will study a recently discovered family of IBA transporters and their roles in modulating auxin levels and plant development. Mechanisms of ARF regulation:u00a0 AUXIN RESPONSE FACTOR (ARF) proteins are a family of key transcription factors that control auxin-responsive transcription. Over the past decade, much research has focused on the ARF de-repression mechanism of modulating auxin response. As a part of an NIH-funded project, the successful candidate will work to uncover additional ARF transcription factor control mechanisms to regulate auxin-responsive gene expression, with a focus on roles for protein multimerization in regulating ARF function. Required Qualifications Applicants must possess a Ph.D. in biology, genetics, biochemistry, or a related field and also possess excellent written and oral communication skills.
