2 Postdoc-Positions Plant Molecular Biology
AG Gene Transfer IPK Gatersleben, Germany

The IPK Gatersleben is a public research centre, with the objective to
carry out basic and applied research in the field of molecular plant
breeding (http://www.ipk-gatersleben.de).

The Gene Transfer Group at the IPK-Gatersleben
(http://www.ipk-gatersleben.de/englisch/abtl-ags/ipke-gt.htm) has
efficient nuclear transformation systems for the production of
transgenic wheat, barley, rye and ryegrass in place. The selected
candidate will work in an international team focussing on the
incorporation of quality traits in cereals and grasses, using genetic
transformation technology. The current openings will be funded for a
period of three years from December 1999 at the scale BAT-IIa-OST .

Since vector construction and molecular analysis of transgenic crops
with the aim of metabolic pathway engineering (position 1) or
development of a plastid transformation system (position 2) will be the
major activities of the selected candidates we expect extensive
experience with standard molecular biology techniques. Experience with
plant tissue culture and -transformation is a plus.

Gatersleben is located in the centre of Germany, close to the Harz
mountains and the historic city of Quedlinburg.
