TWO POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS IN PLANT MOLECULAR GENETICS

Map-Based Cloning Of cer and lec Mutants Of Arabidopsis


     Two postdoctoral positions are available at the S.R. Noble 
Foundation (Ardmore, OK) to pursue map-based cloning strategies in 
Arabidopsis.  Emphasis will be placed on molecular isolation of 
two classes of mutants: (1) eceriferum (cer) mutants altered in 
wax biosynthesis or distribution; and (2)  a homoeotic leafy 
cotyledon (lec) mutant defective in embryo development (Science 
258: 1647-1650).  Research will be performed in the laboratory of 
Dr. Dusty Post-Beittenmiller (Genetics Section Head, Plant Biology 
Division, S.R. Noble Foundation) in collaboration with Dr. David 
Meinke (Professor of Botany, Oklahoma State University). 
Applicants should have extensive experience in molecular biology 
and a solid understanding of genetics.  One position is available 
immediately; the second position will begin after June 1993.  The 
Plant Biology Division at the Noble Foundation currently employs 9 
permanent scientists, 20 postdoctoral fellows and 13 support 
staff.  Research interactions with plant biologists at Oklahoma 
State University have been strengthened by a joint NSF EPSCoR 
cluster in Molecular Analysis of Plant Biotic Stress. Interested 
individuals should send a CV and three letters of recommendation 
to:
