POST-DOCTORAL POSITIONS in PLANT MOLECULAR BIOLOGY
A position is available to study regulation of genes induced
by water stress in Loblolly Pine. The project will focus
mainly on post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression
and will involve transgenic model plants such as tobacco.
The successful candidate will have some years experience in
plant molecular biology, gene transfer using Agrobacterium
tumefaciens and plant tissue culture techniques. The
successful candidate will be energetic and capable of
project leadership, as some advising and direction of
technicians and students will required. S/he will
participate in writing papers, reports and preparing grants.
A second post-doctoral position is available which deals
with monitoring gene expression using differential display
and related techniques of gene cloning and transformation.
The Institute of Paper Science and Technology (IPST) is a
Research University/Graduate School funded by the Pulp and
Paper Industry. IPST has very strong industrial links and
research on all aspects of paper making is conducted at the
Institute. The Forest Biology program at IPST consists of
three faculty members, four permanent technical staff plus
graduate students, working in modern, very well equipped
laboratories. Funding comes from competitive grants and
contracts and is supplemented by IPST funds. The Institutes'
Atlanta facility was built five years ago and is located on
the campus of Georgia Tech in midtown Atlanta. Strong
collaborative links exist between faculty in both
institutions. Library and recreational facilities at Georgia
Tech are open to employees of IPST.
