TWO POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS: GENOME ANALYSIS

Postdoctoral position, Unified molecular mapping of higher plant genomes.
A postdoctoral position is available (1 Sept) to develop and apply new
molecular methods for the comparative molecular analysis of diverse plant
taxa based on expressed genes, building upon extensive databases of prior
information (cf. GENETICS 138:499, 138:829, 141:391; PNAS-USA 92:6127;
SCIENCE, 269:1714-1718; NATURE GENETICS 14:380-382) and existing YAC/BAC
libraries.  The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. and strong
publication record in genetics, molecular biology, microbiology, or allied
field, proven skills in mRNA/cDNA manipulation, a high level of
professional motivation, excellent written and spoken English, and strong
interpersonal skills.  Applicants with experience in =84cDNA selection=BE:
methods using large DNA elements will be strongly preferred.  Salary
commensurate with experience, competitive benefits.  To apply, mail full
CV, reprints of 2-3 first-authored publications, addresses and phones of
at least three professional references to Dr. Andrew Paterson, Plant
Genome Mapping Laboratory, Texas A&M University, College Station, TX
77843.  EMAIL ahp2343 at bioch.tamu.edu.  Affirmative Action/EOE.

Postdoctoral position, Positional gene cloning in higher plants. A
postdoctoral position is available (1 Sept, possibly earlier) to isolate
well-mapped genes and QTLs that have played key roles in domestication of
grasses, especially the Sh-1 gene of sorghum, using extensive databases of
prior information (cf. GENETICS 138:499, 138:829, 141:391; PNAS-USA
92:6127; SCIENCE, 269:1714-1718; NATURE GENETICS 14:380-382), and existing
YAC/BAC libraries.  The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. and strong
publication record in genetics, molecular biology, microbiology, or allied
field, proven skills in cloning and analysis of large genomic DNAs, a high
level of professional motivation, strong communication in English, and
strong interpersonal skills.  Salary commensurate with experience,
competitive benefits. To apply, mail full CV, reprints of 2-3
first-authored publications, addresses and phones of at least three
professional references to Dr. Andrew Paterson, Plant Genome Mapping
Laboratory, Texas A&M University, College Station, TX 77843.  EMAIL
ahp2343 at bioch.tamu.edu.  Affirmative Action/EOE.
