               Postdoctoral Position Available

          Plant Biotechnology Institute - NRC Canada
                   Saskatoon, Canada

     A postdoctoral (Research Associate) position is available to study the 
role of protein-protein interactions in floral morphogenesis in Arabidopsis. 
The successful candidate will employ existing 2-hybrid, 3-hybrid and related 
approaches for the analysis of protein complex formation involving floral 
homeotic gene products in this model species. The project will focus on the 
mechanistic role of such interactions in the regulation of floral ontogeny.
     A candidate with strong molecular biology skills is required for this 
position. Experience with transgenic plant studies, recombinant yeast 
systems and/or recombinant antibody phage display technology would be a 
particular advantage. The position is for an initial period of 2 years with 
possibilities for extension to a third year subject to satisfactory 
performance and availability of resources. The position is available on or 
after September 1, 1996 and offers a competitive salary commensurate with 
experience.
     Saskatoon is a pleasant city of 200,000 and is ranked among the most 
affordable and liveable communities in the country. Situated in the central 
province of Saskatchewan, the area offers an abundance of urban and outdoor 
amenities. The PBI is responsible for executing the National Research 
Council of Canada's plant biotechnology mandate on behalf of the Government 
of Canada. The Institute is situated on the campus of the University of 
Saskatchewan (17,000 students) where strong academic and corporate 
interactions are available, as well as access to excellent physical 
facilities.
