Wed Oct 20 11:18:25 EST 1999

Five postdoctoral fellowships are available at the Max Planck Institute of
Chemical Ecology to study anti-herbivore defenses in Arabidopsis, tobacco
and related species. Research in the Department of Genetics and Evolution
will use functional genomics and QTL mapping to study insect resistance.
Research in the Department of Plant Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
emphasizes the molecular regulation of glucosinolate and terpenoid
metabolism. The institute is international in character, with English the
daily language. Additional information can be found at Review of applications will begin 26 November,
1999. Please send CV, statement of research interests, addresses and phone
numbers of three references to Molecular Biology Search; Max Planck
Institute of Chemical Ecology; Tatzendpromenade 1a; 07745 Jena, Germany;
