<x-flowed>Postdoc Position in the Dept. of Crop, Soil, & Environmental Science,
University of Arkansas

A postdoc position (funded by USDA) is available starting November 1, 2003
to conduct research on site-specific gene integration in rice.  The project
is based on utilization of Cre-lox system to develop precise integration
lines in rice and study transgene expression in cell lines, plants and
progenies (see related articles below).  Specific goals will involve
mapping integration sites and developing improved strategies for
site-specific integration. The candidate should have excellent
communication skills. Experience in molecular biology and plant
transformation is required.
