A postdoctoral position is available to investigate genetic and
molecular genetic aspects of dormancy in cereal grain seeds.  The
objectives are to determine the germination phenotype and genotype of
recombinant inbred (RI) lines segregating for dormancy under various
environmental conditions (G x E), identify molecular markers for
dormancy QTL and clone dormancy QTL.  The candidate should have a
background in molecular genetics with considerable experience in mapping
and/or map-based cloning of QTL.  Experience in statistical genetics,
quantitative genetics and research on small grains, e.g., oats, rice,
wheat, barley would be helpful.  This position is for a collaborative
project between Drs. Michael Foley and Shahryar Kianian with the
USDA-Agriculture Research Service and North Dakota State University in
Fargo, respectively. The project is funded by USDA-NRI and NSF.
Duration of the project is for one year with renewal for additional
years dependent on progress.  For more information contact Dr. Foley
(701) 239-1251 (foleym at fargo.ars.usda.gov) or Dr. Kianian (701) 231-7574
(kianian at badlands.nodak.edu).  To apply e-mail a letter of introduction,
a curriculum vitae, and the names, telephone numbers, and e-mail
addresses of three references to Dr. Michael Foley, USDA-ARS, Biological
Research Laboratory, Fargo, ND 58105-5674.
