  Two postdoctoral positions will be available at the end of this year or the
beginning of next year in the Division of Biology, Kansas State University. One
position is associated with the NASA Gravitational Biology Center.  The person
hired for this position will study molecular mechanisms of plant gravitropism.
Specifically, the project is to clone and characterize genes in higher plants
involved in auxin or gravity signal perception and transduction to the growth
response.  The second position, supported by USDA, will be involved in the
study of plant hormone physiology using genetic engineering approaches.  The
individual will construct various fusion genes, produce and analyze transgenic
plants with altered auxin or cytokinin levels in specific tissues and organs at
specific developmental stages.  The goals of the project are to study the mode
of auxin or cytokinin action during plant growth and development, and to
develop strategies to generate novel traits beneficial for agriculture and
horticulture.  For both positions, preference will be given to applicants who
have been trained in molecular biology, plant physiology or developmental
biology.  Please submit a letter of research interest and curriculum vitae and
arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to
