<x-flowed>Postdoctoral Position - Genomics of Plant-Aphid Interactions

A postdoc position to study Myzus persicae (green peach aphid) gene
expression changes in response to plant defenses is available in the
laboratory of Georg Jander at the Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant
Research in Ithaca, New York.  Funding is available for three years,
beginning in the spring of 2005.

Research responsibilities of the successful candidate will include
construction of aphid cDNA libraries, bioinformatic analysis of DNA
sequence data, printing of glass slide microarrays, and measurements of
gene expression in aphids feeding on Arabidopsis and tomato.  Demonstrated
proficiency with some or all of the research methods that will be used is
essential for this position.  Good interpersonal skills are required for
maintaining interactions with collaborators at the University of Arizona
and Cornell.  Prior experience with aphid research is not necessary.

The Boyce Thompson Institute is a private non-profit research organization
located on the campus of Cornell University, which has a large, active
plant research community.  Ithaca is located in upstate New York and
provides a pleasant university-town living environment with many outdoor
recreational opportunities.  Further information about the Boyce Thompson
