Two Position in Molecular Genetics.  Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the
Department of Plant Sciences, North Dakota State University, Fargo, ND.
Two scientists will be hired 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.  Required qualifications are an earned Ph.D. in
plant sciences, genetics or related areas, a background in molecular
genetics with considerable experience in mapping and/or map-based
cloning of QTL, experience in molecular genetics techniques, ability to
communicate effectively in writing research publications, to manage
information, and to work in a team oriented environment is a must.
Desired qualifications are experience in statistical genetics,
quantitative genetics and research on small grains, e.g., oats, rice,
wheat, and barley.  These positions are 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.
