Two full-time research positions in plant developmental and
molecular genetics are available to assist with the isolation
of tagged embryo-defective mutants of Arabidopsis. These
positions are part of a large-scale project to identify genes
with essential functions during plant growth and development.
Applicants should be familiar with standard laboratory
techniques and must be able to work independently, perform
delicate manipulations under a dissecting microscope, and be
meticulous and enthusiastic about their work. Preference will
be given to applicants planning to stay at these positions for
at least 2 years.
A starting date of June or July 1997 is preferred.
Stillwater is a pleasant university community located about 1
hour drive from both Tulsa and Oklahoma City. The cost of
living is quite reasonable and the weather is not as bad as
some might have you believe. Oklahoma State University has a
strong interdisciplinary program in plant science that involves
faculty in several colleges. Collaborative projects have also
been established with the S.R. Noble Foundation in Ardmore,
which is about 3 hours drive south of Stillwater.
RESEARCH SPECIALIST POSITION:
This individual will coordinate the genetic analysis of tagged
embryo-defective mutants of Arabidopsis and will supervise

Extensive Laboratory Experience Required
Experience in Arabidopsis Genetics Preferred
LABORATORY TECHNOLOGIST POSITION:
This individual will assist with the identification of tagged
embryo-defective mutants of Arabidopsis.
B.S. Degree in Biological Sciences Preferred
Previous Laboratory Experience in Genetics Preferred
