Thu Nov 2 13:19:40 EST 2000


Location: IPK Gatersleben, Gatersleben, Germany
Job Category: Postdoctoral Positions
Salary: BAT IIa-OST
Job Field: Molecular Biology
Job Description: 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
(http://www.ipk-gatersleben.de/agruppen/ipkengt.htm.) has efficient
transformation systems for the production of transgenic wheat, barley,
rye, ryegrass, red fescue and pea in place. The selected candidates will
work in a team focussing on the incorporation and characterisation of
in- and output traits in cereals, grasses and grain legumes using
genetic transformation technology. The current opening will be funded
for a period of three years from December 2000 at the scale BAT-IIa-OST.
Since vector construction and molecular analysis of transgenic crops
with the aim of metabolic pathway engineering 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 but not essential. Gatersleben is
located in the centre of Germany, close to the Harz mountains and the
historic city of Quedlinburg. Please send your CV, list of references
and intended starting date preferably by e-mail to:
