POSITIONS AVAILABLE:  POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW AND TECHNICIAN

We are seeking highly motivated individuals to work on a microarray 
project to examine patterns of gene expression in response to abiotic 
stress (freezing, drought and high salinity) in an Arctic crucifer 
that is closely related to Arabidopsis, but is far more 
stress-tolerant than Arabidopsis. The project is directed by four 
faculty members:  Dr. Marilyn Griffith (physiology of freezing 
tolerance), Dr. Elizabeth Weretilnyk (physiology of salt and drought 
tolerance), Dr. Barbara Moffatt (plant molecular genetics) and Dr. 
Kirsten M=FCller (bioinformatics).  Applicants should have proven 
research skills in genetic, molecular and cellular biology and 
include significant research experience in the following techniques: 
RNA isolation; preparation of cDNA libraries; PCR; and examination of 
gene expression by northern analysis or RT-PCR. These positions 
require excellent communication and organizational skills and are 
available immediately. Applicants for the postdoctoral position 
should have a PhD degree and relevant research experience. Applicants 
for the technician position must have at least a B. Sc. and relevant 
research experience.  These are two-year positions, both with a 
competitive salary (plus benefits).  Interested candidates should 
send a cover letter outlining research experience and interests, a 
curriculum vitae including names and phone numbers of three referees 
to Dr. Kirsten M=FCller, Department of Biology, University of Waterloo, 
Waterloo, ON, N2L 3G1, Canada, kmmuller at sciborg.uwaterloo.ca, 
telephone:  519-888-4567 ext. 2224, FAX:  519-746-0614.  Please ask 
your referees to send confidential letters of recommendation to Dr. 
Kirsten M=FCller.  Applications received after March 31, 2002 will be 
considered only if suitable candidates have not already been 
identified.  University of Waterloo hires on the basis of merit and 
is committed to employment equity. We encourage all qualified 
candidates to apply.
