The Faculty of Natural and Agricultural Sciences at the University of 
Western Australia offers an exciting scholarship for PhD studies in 
Brassica molecular genetics.

Exploiting the Arabidopsis genome sequence as a molecular 'toolbox' 
for   Brassica improvement (LP0210571): The model plant Arabidopsis 
is closely related to the valuable oilseed crop canola. Molecular 
markers will be sought from Arabidopsis to identify genes in canola 
controlling important traits such as oil quality, disease resistance 
and early flowering.  The position is located in the UWA School of 
Plant Biology.  The major supervisor is A/Prof Wallace Cowling (phone 
(08) 9380 7979 or email  wcowling at

We are seeking a graduate with at least a 2A Honours degree and a 
genuine interest in molecular biology, plant breeding or plant 
molecular genetics. Candidates must be Australian citizens or have 
permanent resident status. Applications, indicating evidence of 
qualifications, experience, and statement of interest should be 
addressed to A/Prof Wallace Cowling, School of Plant Biology (Plant 
Sciences), The University of Western Australia, 35 Stirling Highway, 
Crawley WA 6009. Closing date for applications is 15 May 2002.
