Research Technician position
A position is available for a BS or MS level person in the Department of
Crop and Soil Sciences at Michigan State University to work on the molecular
genetic basis of plant freezing tolerance.  The project will involve
transforming Arabidopsis plants with genes involved in plant cold
acclimation and determining the effects that this has on freezing tolerance
and various aspects of growth and development [see: Stockinger et al (1997)
PNAS 94:1035-1040; Jaglo-Ottosen et al (1998) Science 280: 104-106].  Prior
laboratory research experience including use of routine molecular genetic
techniques (e.g., isolation of nucleic acids; molecular cloning; southern
and northern analysis) is highly desired.  Please send cv to:
