A postdoctoral research associate position will become available in the

Laboratory of Plant Molecular Physiology, headed by Dr.
Fredy Altpeter 
(<<http://agronomy.ifas.ufl.edu/Altpeter.HTML>http://agronomy.ifas.ufl.edu/Altpeter.HTML>).
Our research integrates efficient genetic transformation protocols
for commercially important cereals and grasses and functional genomics

for the dissection and engineering of molecular components of stress tolerance.



The selected candidate will focus on comparative genomics of drought 
tolerance in grasses, involving

database mining, identification of differentially expressed 
regulatory genes, isolation of genes by hybridization

and PCR based methods, construction of plant expression vectors for 
RNAi suppression or over-expression of candidate genes,
molecular and phenotypic characterization of transgenic plants.



QUALIFICATION: Ph. D. in Molecular Genetics or related field with a 
strong organizational, written and oral communication, and computer 
skills. The candidate must have solid hands-on experience in a wide 
range of molecular biology protocols. Experience of working in teams, 
as well as an ability to work independently, is essential. Experience 
with microarrays is desirable.



SALARY AND BENEFITS: Annual starting salary will commensurate with 
qualifications and experience in the range of $ 29,000 and $ 32,000 
plus benefits.



APPLICATION DEAD LINE: March 1st , 2004 or until a suitable applicant
