POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS AVAILABLE FOR STUDIES OF GRASS GENOME STRUCTURE,
FUNCTION AND EVOLUTION

Four postdoctoral positions are available, two for recent Ph.D.s and two
for individuals with extensive postdoctoral experience in molecular
genetics.  Research is centered on analysis of the sequences of
bacterial artificial chromosomes containing inserts from syntenic
regions of the maize, sorghum, barley, wheat and rice genomes.  Many of
these regions have been selected because they contain known or candidate
disease resistance genes.  These positions will involve most of their
efforts on clone isolation and sequence data analysis and less effort in
actual sequence data generation, which is largely automated and
transferred to a service facility.  Experience in cloning, subcloning
and the analysis of DNA sequence data are essential.  Expertise in plant
pathology, evolutionary biology and/or bioinformatics would be a
definite plus.  Salary will be $25,000-$40,000 per annum, commensurate
with experience.  Support is for two to four years, and can start as
early as October of 1999.  However, the PI is moving his lab from Purdue
University to UW Madison during the first half of 2000, so starting at
or transferring to Madison would be expected.
