Arabidopsis Functional Genomics Consortium
has openings for
Research Assistant Professor
Postdoctoral Associates
Computer Programmers
Graduate Students
Research Technicians

The Arabidopsis Functional Genomics Consortium (AFGC) is an NSF-funded
collaboration among several US academic institutions working together to
utilize and develop state-of-the-art  technologies in Arabidopsis genomics.
Our program
includes services and technology development in plant gene expression using
DNA microarray technology and PCR-assisted site-selected mutagenesis to
functionally characterize the Arabidopsis genome. Special emphasis will be
placed on the characterization of plant-specific genes and the development
and adaption of bioinformatics systems to support these technologies. We invite
applications for positions in the AFGC to join us in the challenge of
developing breakthroughs in plant genomics research. The Institutions of the
AFGC along with their experimental emphasis and personnel openings are
listed below.  Candidates should apply directly to the address indicated for
each position of interest.  Applications should indicate the position title,
and include a curriculum vitae and the names of three references.  The AFGC
is especially interested in applications from under-represented minorities
and women.
