Colorado State University, Fort Collins

A Ph.D. research assistantship is available in the Horticulture and
Landscape Architecture Department at Colorado State University. The
program areas include analysis of the role of Ribosome-Inactivating
Proteins (RIPs) in plants (see Plant Physiol. 119, 1447-1456; 1999),
purification of RIPs in Arabidopsis and the characterization of
novel plant metabolites with medicinal/value-added activities (see
Trends Plant Science 4, 220-226; 1999). The projects involve
chromatographic separations, library construction/screening, in vitro
activity assays, and interaction with cancer research centers for
metabolite applications. Applicants with an M.S. degree in a
plant-related area experience in protein/metabolite chromatography,
and molecular biology are desirable. However, highly successful and
motivated B.S. applicants will also be considered. Selection will be
based on academic achievements and research experience. Applicants
should send GRE scores, transcripts, three letters of reference,
reprints, and a personal letter describing professional goals to the
