A POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE (Plant Molecular Biology) position is
available at the University of Illinois at Urbana/Champaign to study the
genetic mechanisms of tolerance to virus infection in Arabidopsis (see MPMI
9:729-735).  The project will involve the positional cloning and the analysis
of the expression of a gene that confers tolerance to tobacco ringspot virus.
BAC and YAC clones that contain the gene have been identified.  The successful
candidate will assume the responsibility for isolating the gene and
characterizing its mode of action in tolerant and sensitive responses to virus
infection in plants.  A Ph.D. in plant molecular biology, genetics, plant
pathology or related area is required.  Preference will be given to
individuals with expertise in map-based cloning, analysis of expression and
plant transformation.  The project is supported for two years by a USDA grant
submitted by L. L. Domier, G. L. Hartman and A. F. Bent.  To apply, send a
letter outlining research interests, a C.V. and the names and addresses of
three references to:
