Wheat Molecular Genetics Position
University of California, Davis

A research position is available, starting immediately, to do positional
cloning of vernalization genes Vrn1 and Vrn2 in diploid wheat Triticum
monococcum (see Theor Appl Genet 97: 968-975). High-density maps with markers
located at less than 1cM for the genes and a BAC library with four-genome
equivalent coverage are available. Preliminary chromosome walking results have
shown a 100kb / 0.1 cM ratio between physical and genetic distances in both
regions. Research experience in molecular biology, molecular genetics, and
sequence analysis are required. To apply, please send curriculum vitae and
names, e-mail addresses, and phone numbers of three references to Dr. Jorge
Dubcovsky, Department of Agronomy and Range Science, One Shields Avenue,
University of California, Davis CA 95616, USA; telephone 530-752-5159, fax
530-752-4361, e-mail jdubcovsky at ucdavis.edu.
