A research assistantship is available to work in a program studying gene
expression in Sunflower exposed to conditions of water deficit or high
salinity. The project is supported by US-AID. The primary objective is to
identify gene sequences, expressed in roots or stems of sunflower, that are
up-regulated or down-regulated in response to these abiotic stresses.
Familiarity with methods such as Southern and Northern hybridization, cDNA
library construction and/or differential display RT-PCR is advantageous. The
assistantship is available to either MS or PhD candidates. The stipend is
$12,000 per year and includes a tuition reduction. Send responses or requests
for more information to me at the address/numbers below. Please share this
information with those who may have an interest. Thank you.
