Exciting Careers in Agricultural Biotechnology

XYRIS Corporation is a newly founded agricultural biotechnology company 
dedicated to the discovery and utilization of novel plant genes for the 
production of agronomically important traits in major crop species and to 
the discovery of novel therapeutic compounds for applications in animal 
health. We are currently hiring a world-class research staff, and we are 
seeking highly talented, motivated and creative individuals for research 
positions at the group leader, staff scientist, and technician levels. 
Applicants should provide evidence of technical expertise and
