Postdoctoral in Genome Mapping of Maize

The Maize Mapping Project at the University of Missouri, collaborating
with the Agricultural Research Service, USDA, seeks a scientist to
participate in our research program, carrying out primary mapping of
cloned genes and mutants.  This is an extraordinary opportunity to
experience high-efficiency mapping; to contribute to improvements in
mapping designs; to apply molecular methods to exploit clues to gene
functions discovered by mapping; to access genes for quantitative trait
inheritance in this major crop; to relate gene expression and
relationship to phenotype; to learn sophisticated genome informatics;
and to view the diversity of genetic variation in maize.  The scientist
will map selected visible-expression genes, and DNA homologs among
selected functions, relating their map positions toward intersecting
mutants to functions; derive gene-specific probes; and relate
functioning of the genes according to tissue, stage, and conditions with
the expressions.  Conduct of the project requires knowledge pertinent to
molecular genetics, plant physiology, and biochemistry.  Familiarity
with database applications is desirable.  The research literature is
extensive and wide-ranging, requiring experience in the comprehensive
study and extraction of information to evaluate, merge, and represent
the information in database form.  The position is contingent upon
availability of funding, but consideration of applications will begin
upon receipt.  U.S. citizenship is required.  Send resume to E. H. Coe
