COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY
POST DOCTORAL RESEARCH POSITION
FLUORESCENCE IN SITU HYBRIDIZATION IN SUPPORT OF THE INTERNATIONAL 
EFFORT TO SEQUENCE THE TOMATO GENOME

An NSF-funded post doctoral position is available to do fluorescence in 
situ hybridization (FISH) in support of the international effort to 
sequence the tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) genome (see 
<http://www.sgn.cornell.edu>).  For this project, we currently hybridize 
genomic DNA (inserts from a tomato BAC library) to pachytene chromosomes 
to keep the sequencing effort concentrated and properly oriented in 
euchromatin.  In addition, we will do fiber-FISH to define the size of 
gaps between contigs.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Genetics, biology, or a related field 
and a background in cytogenetics and molecular biology. Experience with 
plant chromosomes and FISH is desirable.

Applications will be accepted until the position is filled, but should 
be received by October 1, 2006 to receive full consideration.

Colorado State University is located in Fort Collins, Colorado, a 
beautiful city of 120,000 people located at the foot of the Rocky 
Mountains 60 miles north of Denver.  The Rocky Mountain National Park 
and opportunities for hiking, skiing, and fishing are located nearby.
