<x-rich><fontfamily><param>Geneva</param>A postdoctoral position is available
to join a NSF-funded functional genomics consortium studying expression
of parental genes in Arabidopsis polyploids.  This five-year project
employs DNA microarray and cDNA display techniques to uncover the genes
that are up- or down-regulated during polyploid or hybrid formation in
ABC (Arabidopsis, Brassica, or Corn).  We anticipate that some
important mechanisms involved in the regulation of parental genes will
be uncovered to address a question of why plant polyploids and hybrids
are so successful during evolution.


Candidates should have research experience in transmission genetics,
nucleic acid manipulation, and standard biochemical techniques.  The
incumbent will be responsible for making cDNA microarrays, preparing
cDNA probes for DNA hybridization, and analyzing microarray data using
commercial software.  The successful candidate will have an opportunity
to interact with a strong research community in plant genomics on the
Texas A&M campus as well as members from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory,
Purdue University, University of Missouri, University of Washington,
and University of Wisconsin.


Candidates should send a statement of career goals and a copy of
curriculum vitae including names and addresses of three references to:
