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 cyllene.uwa.edu.au).
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.
