Postdoctoral Position Available in Maize Gametophyte Development

FUNCTIONAL GENOMICS OF MAIZE GAMETOPHYTES

Laboratory of Matt Evans
Carnegie Institution for Science
Department of Plant Biology
Stanford, CA 94305

A postdoctoral position is available starting immediately to study 
the functional genomics of maize gametophyte development.  The 
successful applicant will join an NSF Plant Genome Research 
Program-funded collaboration between the Carnegie Institution, Oregon 
State University, Iowa State University, South Dakota State 
University, and Stanford University.  The project uses molecular, 
genetic, and bioinformatic tools to identify genes required for 
gametophyte development and function in maize. A Ph.D. in molecular 
biology, genetics, or a related field is required.  A strong 
background in genetics and molecular biology is desired.  Experience 
in maize genetics is advantageous but not required.  Excellent 
communication skills and an ability and willingness to collaborate 
are essential.  The successful applicant is also expected to interact 
with undergraduates participating in the project through the Stanford 
Science in Service Program.

Interested individuals should send an application package through e-mail (a
cover letter detailing experience; CV; publication reprints; and names,
telephone numbers and e-mail addresses of three references) to Matt 
Evans, Carnegie Institution for Science, Department of Plant Biology, 
260 Panama St., Stanford, CA 94305 USA; phone: 650-325-1521 x.283; 
fax:  650-325-6857; email:  mmsevans from stanford.edu

The Carnegie Institution is an equal opportunity employer.
