POSTDOCTORAL POSITION
Position available immediately to take part in a USDA-NRI funded 
project to perform molecular and genetic analysis of biosynthesis and 
regulation of sorghum phytoalexins induced in response to the fungus 
Colletotrichum.  The objectives of this project are 1) to identify 
sorghum genes that are critical to the biosynthesis of the 
phytoalexins and to test the function of these genes in heterologous 
as well as homologous systems and 2) to characterize transposon 
induced mutants of sorghum that have altered synthesis/regulation of 
3-deoxy-flavonoids and phytoalexins. The position is for 2 years: 
Applicants should have a record of accomplishment in molecular 
genetics, and biochemistry.  Send via E-mail: curriculum vitae 
including list of publications, statement of
research interests and professional goals, and contact information 
for three referees to: SIC3 at PSU.EDU
