Post-doctoral research associate

Candidates are sought for a research position in a plant molecular 
biology laboratory.  Experience in electrophysiology (patch clamping, 
protein expression and reconstitution into artificial bilayers and/or 
oocyte expression) preferable.  The proposed studies will focus on 
identifying and characterizing new plant potassium channel genes.  
The research program will integrate molecular genetic approaches for 
gene manipulation, and patch clamp analysis of ion channel function. 
Start date can be 7/1/96.

Graduate research assistantship

Candidates are sought for a PhD graduate assistantship in a plant 
molecular biology laboratory.  Preference will be given to candidates 
with a M.S. degree in an appropriate field, and prior experience with 
standard gene manipulation techniques; i.e. related to library 
screening, plasmid preparations, subcloning, DNA sequencing, RNA 
isolation and Northern analysis.  The research program will integrate 
molecular genetic approaches for gene manipulation, and patch clamp 
analysis of plant potassium channel function.  The NSF-funded 
research program will focus on identifying and characterizing new 
plant ion channel genes.
