Two positions are immediately available in my lab working on structural and
functional genomics in Arabidopsis and polyploid crops.  The lab is
interested in two areas of research: (1) marker-assisted selection in
breeding programs using high-throughput markers and (2) evolutionary and
functional consequences of genome duplication in an interspecific hybrid
and allopolyploid plant in which two or more genomes are derived from
different progenitor species.  We are using genomic and biochemical
approaches to address the questions at basic and applied levels in
Arabidopsis, cotton, and wheat.  One position will be filled at the level
of Research Assistant or Associate depending upon qualifications; the
second position will be filled as a graduate student.  The candidates for
the later position must meet the requirements set by the interdisciplinary
graduate programs in Genetics.  The research environment at Texas A&M
University is excellent.  Research activities in plant genomics on the
campus include but not exclusively a BAC Center to facilitate genomic
sequencing and a functional genomic initiative for genome-wide expression
analysis in microbial, yeast, and plants.  Crop Biotechnology Center is
finished with state-of-art equipment and growth facilities for basic and
applied research in plant genomics.  Texas A&M University is located in
College Station, a college town surrounded by major cities, Austin, Dallas,
Houston, and San Antonio, within a few hours of driving distance.  It has
rich college culture and easy access to metropolitan life styles.
Interested person should send a statement of career goals along with a copy
of resume including three names and addresses of references to
zjchen at acs.tamu.edu, Dr. Z. Jeffrey Chen, Department of Soil and Crop
Sciences and Crop Biotechnology Center, Texas A&M University, College
Station, TX 77843-2474.  Texas A&M University is an equal opportunity
employer.
