Dear Bulletin Board Colleagues,
  I currently have an opening for a M.S. level scientist working 
with Arabidopsis for which I am seeking your aid in identifying 
suitable candidates.  Beginning in July, I will be initiating a 
research group in the Plant Sciences group of Central Research 
and Development at the DuPont Company in Wilmington, Delaware. 
The group will focus on the metabolism of starch and other 
carboydrates, using Arabidopsis as the model organism.  
	 The successful candidate will participate in biochemical and 
physiological studies of existing starch mutants, isolations of 
new types of mutants and the cloning and characterization of 
the genes identified by these mutations.  The optimal candidate 
will have a M.S. degree in a biological science and experience 
with and knowledge of biochemistry, especially relating to 
carbohydrate metabolism.  The individual should be able to work 
independently and with others and be capable of contributing 
insights and ideas to the research projects.  Practical and 
theoretical knowledge of molecular biology and genetics and 
experience working with plants are advantageous. Ideally, the 
position would be filled beginning in July or August of 1991,  
however, some flexibility in the starting date is possible.
	  Applications, including a curriculum vitae and three letters 
of reference, should be sent to me.  Until July 1, my address is:
			Univ. of California Plant Gene Expression Center
			800 Buchanan St.
			Albany, CA 94710.
After that date, my address will be:
			Plant Sciences Group
			DuPont Company
			P.O. Box 80402
			Wilmington, DE  19880-0402
