Dear Edwin,
I too was surprised that the ad specified an upper age limit. If it helps, in the UK we can specify the experience required, but not the age. Salary here is based on experience, not age. I believe that the ad specifying an upper age limit could not be defended under European law. The other restrictions in the "PS" seem equally difficult to defend. There should be no criticism of arab-gen however, and I would ctriticise only the original ad, which the author will surely justify, or apologise for,

Just curious, does arab-gen take a stand on age discrimination?  It seems
to me that distributing job announcements like this only facilitates
institutionalized discrimination.

different proteins transiently expressed in N.benthamiana leaves. Among
these proteins is LPR1, a protein first identified as an Arabidopsis QTL
(Quantitative Trait Loci) and involved in the root growth response to
phosphate starvation (Reymond et al. , 2006, Plant Cell & Environment,
29:115-125). A deeper analyse of the LPR1 expression & function is also
