Two positions are currently available in my lab to study plant 
developmental genetics in model species, including maize and 
Arabidopsis. 

1. Summer Undergraduate Internship.
	An NSF funded "REU" (research experience for undergraduates) 
10- week intern position is available in the lab. of Dr. Dave Jackson 
at Cold Spring Harbor. The research will combine genetics, molecular 
and cell biological research, focusing on cereal crop plants. 
Applicants should ideally have some lab experience though enthusiasm 
and ability to work in a team are the most important criteria. 
Minority students are especially encouraged to apply. Dates are 
flexible but should include July-August.

2. Laboratory Technician.
A full time lab tech position is available. The research will combine 
cellular and genetic techniques to understand molecular aspects of 
plant development, focusing on stem cell specification and signaling. 
Prior experience in molecular biology and genetics are preferred; 
enthusiasm and ability to work in a team is required. Please send 
application letter and CV to Dr. Dave Jackson, CSHL, 1 Bungtown Rd., 
Cold Spring Harbor, NY 11724, or email jacksond at cshl.org for 
additional details.
