POSTDOCTORAL Research Associate Position

                University of Minnesota
         Department of Agronomy and Plant Genetics

Project involves biochemical and molecular analysis of acetyl-CoA
carboxylase (ACCase) activity in transgenic plants expressing
antisense or sense genes for ACCase and in herbicide-tolerant maize
mutants.  Plastidic ACCase activity is required for fatty acid
biosynthesis and ACCase is the site of action for several
herbicides in grasses.  As part of a collaborative research effort
in the laboratories of Burle Gengenbach, David Somers and John
Gronwald, this postdoctoral position will have a specific focus on
analysis of ACCase expression in transgenic plants and determining
whether altered expression affects fatty acid biosynthesis.  For
further information, contact Burle Gengenbach at 612-625-6282 or
burle at biosci.cbs.umn.edu

Applicants must have a PhD degree in biochemistry, molecular
biology, genetics, plant physiology or a related field.  Desired
experience includes work with plant enzymes and molecular biology
techniques.

This 2-year position is available immediately and will remain open
until a suitable candidate is identified.  To apply, send
application, curriculum vitae, and the names, addresses, and
telephone numbers of 3 references to burle at biosci.cbs.umn.edu or
to:
                Jeanne Davy, Administrator
