Missouri Maize Project

Position Announcement

Research Associate (Three Positions Available)

Scientists experienced in genetics and related sciences are needed for three
non-tenure-track positions with the Missouri Maize Project
(http://www.cafnr.missouri.edu/mmp).  MMP is the inaugural project of the
new Maize Genomics Center at the University of Missouri, and focuses on
developing physical, genetic, and bioinformatics resources for the maize
genome.

Position #1:  Quantitative Genetics Information
The successful candidate will be responsible for development and data entry
of quantitative trait genetics into the maize genome database, using
published or unpublished data from research laboratories.  Use of complex
query programs and interaction and communication with members of the
research community are required. A Ph.D. plus at least three years of
postdoctoral experience is required.

Position #2:  Mutant Mapping
The successful candidate will be responsible for overseeing and conducting
the development and application of innovative, high-efficiency laboratory
techniques for mapping maize mutants and for preparing and entering data in
the maize genome database.  These goals will be accomplished by using
pedigreed genetic research stocks, by growing and classifying large numbers
of maize seedlings, by developing and completing micro-preparation of large
numbers of samples, by adapting multiple-transfer methods, and by systematic
DNA-marker and analysis methods. A Ph.D. plus at least three years of
postdoctoral experience is required.

Position #3:  Genetic Information
The successful candidate will be responsible for literature study,
summarization, and data entry of genetic, molecular genetic, and biochemical
information into the maize genome database, using published or unpublished
data from research laboratories.  Use of complex query programs and
interaction and communication with members of the research community are
required.. A Ph.D. plus at least three years of postdoctoral experience is
preferred.

Applicants should mail a complete resume, including relevant experience,
skills, and phone and email addresses of at least three references to Dr.
E.H. Coe, Missouri Maize Project, 215 Curtis Hall, University of Missouri,
Columbia, MO 65211-7020.  Application deadline is February 24, 1999.  The
University of Missouri is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action employer.
Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
