Dear Colleagues,

Please bring the below position announcement to the attention of potential
candidates in your lab and department. We are fortunate to have an
opportunity to build a significant program on corn and sorghum related to
mapping and marker-assisted selection for drought and insect tolerance in
corn and sorghum. This program involves four four senior scientists at
Texas Tech and Texas A&M Universities. Thank you very much for your kind

Henry Nguyen


Post-doctoral Positions in Corn and Sorghum Mapping and Molecular Breeding

Three post-doctoral research associate positions are available in January
1998 or when  suitable candidates are identified. Research projects include
(1) molecular mapping of insect (mite) and drought tolerance in corn, (2)
development of marker-assisted selection to combine drought and insect
resistance in sorghum, and (3) testing methods for detection and
introgression of novel QTLs from exotic germplasm to enhance yield and
stress adaptation in sorghum. Candidates should have a Ph.D. degree with a
strong background in genetics, molecular marker techniques, and statistics.
Experience in high resolution genetic mapping and physical mapping will be
an advantage depending on a specific position. Successful candidates will
join a research team working on QTLs and candidate genes for drought and
insect resistance, molecular breeding and comparative mapping in cereal
crops. Position will be assigned depending on the strengths and interests
of the successful applicants. Send a statement of research experience and
interests, copies of published articles, and a curriculum vitae including
name, telephone number and e-mail address of at least three reference to:
