Postdoctoral Positions (both are readvertisements) -

Available immediately.
Opening for a Postdoctoral Researcher on project to clone, characterize and
study the expression patterns of ethylene biosynthesis genes expressed
during wood production in loblolly pine. Two years of funding available from
a USDA grant -- continued support dependent upon performance and grant
renewal. Successful candidates MUST have demonstrated experience with
cloning genes and characterizing their expression patterns. Candidates
having experience with in situ hybridization are particularly desired.

Available January 1, 2000.
Postdoctoral research position to study the molecular biology, biochemistry,
and cell biology of laccase genes in vascular plants. Particular interest in
dissecting expression patterns and functions for several cloned laccases
from Arabidopsis. Depending upon the successful
candidate's skills and interests, the project may include work in the areas
of structure-function analysis (site-directed mutagenesis and X-ray
crystallography with assistance from researchers in the Center for
Metalloenzyme Studies, glycoprotein structure,
assembly and transport (assistance from colleagues in the CCRC, or regulation of gene expression patterns. Three
years of funding available from new USDOE grant. Successful candidates MUST
have demonstrated molecular biology expertise.

Send cover letter, CV, transcripts (not required for initial consideration,
but required prior to hiring), and the names and e-mail addresses for three

Graduate Assistantships -

One to support a Ph.D. candidate through either the School of Forest
Resources or the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology ($15,663
per year stipend). A second assistantship limited to candidates entering
through the School of Forest Resources for either an M.S. or Ph.D.
(preferred) program of study ($14696 per year for M.S. stipend). Successful
candidates may choose to work on either of the two projects listed above, or
may opt for projects in the areas of lignin modification or functional
