A 3-year Post-Doctoral Position (with the option of a 2-year 
extension) is immediately available at the Heinrich-Heine-University 
Dusseldorf (Germany) in the Institute of Plant Molecular and 
Developmental Biology. The appointee is expected to carry out 
research on the Nitrogen Use Efficiency (NUE) of maize. Prime 
objectives are to identify candidate genes for NUE by gene expression 
profiling and to characterize the structure of interesting candidate 
genes and their alleles. The project is a collaboration between the 
University of Hohenheim (Prof. Geiger, Institute of Plant Breeding, 
Seed Science, and Population Genetics) and a German seed company and 
is under the auspices of the French-German EUREKA programme 

The successful applicant should hold a Ph.D. or doctoral degree in 
plant mole-cular biology or related fields. Review of applicants will 
begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.

Applications including a Curriculum Vitae, a list of publications and 
the addresses of two referees should be submitted no later than three 
weeks after publication of this advertisement to:
