Research Associate - Molecular Biology. Two postdoctoral positions are
available to 
work on peanut molecular biology.  The successful candidates will
conduct research on 
the molecular biology of drought and disease resistance, and improving
protein quality 
of peanut.  Major goals will include identifying molecular markers for
disease  and 
drought resistance, cloning methionine-rich protein gene, and
transformation of peanut. 
 The appointees will be expected to have demonstrated experience in
modern molecular 
biology techniques, which may include mRNA isolation and in vitro
translation, southern 
and northern hybridization, RT-PCR, gene cloning/vector  construction,
screening  cDNA 
library  using polyclonal antibodies, DNA sequencing and related
techniques, to detect, 
describe and manage the behavior of the genes.  The laboratory is fully
equipped with 
necessary instrumentation and supplies for the above research.  A Ph.D.
in plant 
science with extensive knowledge and experience in plant molecular
biology is required. 
Applicants must submit a letter of application describing research and
career interests 
and experience, resume, transcripts and three references to
