 A post-doctoral associate and a research associate position are
available immediately for the study of functional genomics in the
model legume species Medicago truncatula.  Both individuals will
interact with a larger group investigating M. truncatula genomics
(including researchers at Texas A&M, the Noble Foundation, the
University of Minnesota, and the University of Georgia;   see project
abstract at http://chrysie.tamu.edu/medicago/) and with a
multidisciplinary group at Texas A&M researching the plant cell and
molecular biology of the legume/Rhizobium symbiosis.  The post-doc
will  sequence expressed genes from Rhizobium-inoculated roots, and
use DNA microarray technology for analysis of gene expression in
microbially induced M. truncatula tissues.  The successful candidate
will have a recent Ph.D. in plant molecular biology (or a related
field) and experience in cDNA library construction and screening. and
automated DNA sequencing.  The research associate will assist the
post-doc and  co-ordinate aspects of the project, including use of
robotics.  A M.S. in molecular biology, or a B.S. and three years of
experience, are required for the research associate position. Those
interested should send a c.v. and names of three references to: Dr.
