Postdoctoral and Graduate Positions Available in a
Genetics Laboratory at the University of Georgia.
We are looking for graduate students and postdoctoral
fellows to work in the areas of RNA decay and
phytoremediation of heavy metal pollution. A few recent papers
are listed below (Belostotsky and Meagher, 1993; Tanzer and
Meagher, 1994; Tanzer and Meagher, 1995; Belostotsky and
Meagher, 1996; Rugh et al., 1996) . Prospective graduate
students should apply to R.B.M. or directly to the department
(Graduate Coordinator, same address as below). Postdoctoral
applicants with special experience in molecular and/or
biochemical genetics of plants, yeast, and E. coli will be given
special consideration. Seriously interested postdoctoral
candidates should send a copy of their CV and the names,
addresses, and phone of three references to:
Richard B. Meagher, Professor and Head
Department of Genetics
Life Sciences Building
University of Georgia
Athens, GA 30602
Meagher at bscr.uga.edu
The working conditions and facilities in our laboratory in
the new Life Sciences Building are excellent. Athens is a
lovely and inexpensive place to live in with all of the
advantages of and culture of a 200-year-old university town.
