The Department of Plant Pathology, University of Kentucky, has four
research position openings to work on novel approaches for control of
plant pathogenic fungi using the downy mildew fungus of
<italic>Nicotiana</italic> spp. as a model system:
(1) Expression of fungal and mycovirus-encoded antifungal polypeptides
in transgenic plants (Dr. Said A. Ghabrial, PI, e-mail:
saghab00 at pop.uky.edu).
(2) Regulatory genes involved in systemic acquired resistance (Dr.
Chris Schardl, PI, schardl at pop.uky.edu).
(3) Development of molecular markers for epidemiological and population
studies of <italic>Peronospora tabacina </italic>(Dr. Mark L. Farman,
PI, farman at pop.uky.edu).
(4) Cloning and functional characterization of disease resistance genes
(Dr. Qingshun (Quinn) Li, PI, agr022 at pop.uky.edu, Tobacco and Health
Research Institute; Dr. Mark L. Farman, Co-PI).
Interested applicants should send CV with brief
statement of research background and interest with names of three
references directed to the appropriate PI at :
