I would appreciate your help in distributing the following position 
announcements to prospective candidates.

GRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANTSHIP @ TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY: A Ph.D. 
graduate assistantship is available IMMEDIATELY for a highly 
motivated student to join a functional genomics program studying the 
effect of environmental stress on modulating gene expression, seed 
development, and traits associated with seed quality in Arabidopsis 
and wheat.  Candidates should have interests in plant gene 
expression, standard molecular biology techniques, plant tissue 
culture, physiology and or gene transformation of Arabidopsis or 
cereals. The incumbent will work on funded projects using modern 
molecular and physiological techniques to define environmental stress 
tolerance and susceptibility during fertilization and seed 
development in Arabidopsis and wheat. The graduate student will have 
an opportunity to develop an independent research program, attend 
scientific meetings and develop collaborative research projects 
through interactions with plant genomics groups, plant breeders, and 
cereal chemists on and off the Texas A&M campus.  The graduate 
student will be affiliated with the Molecular and Environmental Plant 
Sciences Interdisciplinary program at Texas A&M University.  The 
candidate will be paid competitively with medical benefits and 
reimbursement of tuition costs.  Candidates should send a statement 
of interest, copy of transcripts, and a curriculum vitae including 
names, email addresses and phone numbers of three references to: Dr. 
Dirk B. Hays, Molecular and Environmental Plant Sciences, 2474-TAMU, 
Texas A&M University, 2474-TAMU, College Station, TX 77843 
979-458-0032 phone, 979-845-8924 laboratory, 979-845-0456 FAX, . 
Screening will begin upon receipt of applications and close by 
September 17, 2004. Interested students should go to the following 
website to apply for admission to Texas A&M:

POSDOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE @ TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY:  A 
postdoctoral position is available immediately for a highly motivated 
researcher to join a functional genomics program studying the effect 
of environmental stress on modulating gene expression, fertilization 
and seed development, and traits associated with seed quality in 
Arabidopsis and wheat.  Candidates should have research and 
publication experience in some of the following areas; plant gene 
expression, standard molecular biology techniques, positional 
cloning, plant tissue culture, plant physiology and or gene 
transformation of Arabidopsis. The incumbent will be responsible for 
identifying candidate genes from microarray applications, and 
analyzing the role of genes of unknown functions from these arrays 
using reverse genetics in Arabidopsis. The incumbent will have an 
opportunity to develop an independent research program through the 
development of federal and state grants, and be encouraged to attend 
scientific meetings, and develop collaborative research projects 
through interactions with plant genomics groups, breeders, and cereal 
chemists on and off the Texas A&M campus. The postdoctoral candidate 
will be paid competitively with benefits, and medical according to 
their experience.  Candidates should send a statement of their career 
goals, copy of transcripts, and a curriculum vitae including names, 
email addresses and phone numbers of three references to: Dr. Dirk B. 
Hays, Molecular and Environmental Plant Sciences, Texas A&M 
University, 2474-TAMU, College Station, TX 77843 979-458-0032 phone, 
979-845-8924 laboratory, 979-845-0456 FAX, .  Screening will begin 
upon receipt of applications and September 17, 2004.
