POST-DOCTORAL POSITION



   A post-doctoral position, starting between september and december 1998,
is available with Stéphane Blanc at the Station de Recherches de
Pathologie Comparée, Saint-Christol-lez-Alès, FRANCE.



   The Lab is currently working on the elucidation of the molecular
mechanims of cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV) aphid transmission. Several
projects are in progress such as:


   (i) study of the interaction between the aphid transmission factor and
cellular  microtubules (Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA, 93, 15158-15163);
Possible applications of   this property in plant pathology and beyond.


   (ii) Characterization of an additionnal (viral) factor involved in
aphid transmission.
   Indeed virus particles and aphid transmssion factor are not sufficient
for aphid    transmission to occur. An additional viral gene product is
now identified as a co-factor  regulating the interactions between virus
and vector. This is so far a unique phenomenon  among viruses transmitted
in a non-circulative, helper-dependent manner.

   etc.......

   The post-doc will be expected to develope a project related to either
(i) or (ii) in   agreement with Stéphane Blanc. Post-doctoral position is
for 1 year with possible   extension for a second year and the salary will
be around 10 000FF a month, after tax.

   CV and applications are to be ready by june 1998 and the candidate will
be selected    during july or august.
