We have 2 Postdoctoral Research Associate Positions in (1) Maize 
Transformation and (2) Gene Targeting in plants.  Below is a brief 
description of these positions.

We seek highly qualified applicants to join a team of researchers 
working to improve plant transformation technology, with a particular 
focus on maize.  Research projects may involve gene targeting, 
chromatin elements such as MARs and insulators, or other techniques 
to reduce position effects and gene silencing while improving gene 
transfer and enhancing stable and predictable gene expression. 

A PhD is required in a relevant biological discipline.  The 
successful applicant will have strong molecular skills and a track 
record of peer-reviewed publication in chromatin structure, gene 
expression, cell/developmental biology, or plant transformation. 
Experience with plant systems is desirable, but not essential. 
Strong interpersonal skills and a willingness to learn and apply new 
techniques are important, as is the ability to work independently 
while functioning as part of a team. 

Please send applications, including a CV, statement of interest and
