Postdoctoral position to study the relationship of QTLs for maysin
synthesis and corn earworm antibiosis to expression of genes in the
flavonoid and phenylpropanoid pathways in maize silks (see PNAS
93:8820-8825).  Incumbent will be responsible for isolation and
characterization of genes involved in flavone synthesis in silks and for
determining expression levels of mRNA for flavanoid structural and
regulatory genes.  Position requires experience in gene cloning,
sequencing and expression assays.  Experience in maize genetics and QTL
analysis a plus.  The position is for two years beginning as early as
March 1, 1998.  Salary is $26,000 to 28,000 depending on experience.  To
apply email letter of interest, CV, and the names and email addresses of
