A graduate student position is available at the Department of 
Horticulture, Oregon State University to study the interaction 
between tomato and Botrytis cinerea. 

Three approaches are taken to understand the molecular genetics of 
plant defense against gray mold. 1) Screening tomato mutants and wild 
relatives for gray mold resistance traits, 2) characterization of 
molecular aspects of the plant response to B. cinerea mutants using 
differential gene expression, and 3) analysis of antimicrobial 
peptide defenses.  We will develop an interdisciplinary approach to 
these scientific problems through interactions with research groups 
in the Center for Gene Research and Biotechnology.

Candidates must have a M.S. degree in molecular biology, 
biochemistry, microbiology, or genetics, or a B.S. with equivalent 
training, and strong training/experience in molecular and biological 
techniques.

To apply, please send a letter of research interest (including the 
experience/training you would bring to the position), professional 
resume, copies of academic transcripts, three reference letters, and 
any other information considered pertinent by the applicant.
