isolation and characterization of genes involved in mating, hyphal
development, and/or virulence. Molecular experience is required and a
strong background in yeast or fungal genetics/molecular biology is
preferred. The positions are located in the Dept. of Microbiology at the
University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA) and are
funded for up to three years.
