PLANT MOLECULAR BIOLOGY POST-DOCTORAL POSTION
at
THE INSTITUTE OF PAPER SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY, ATLANTA, GA


A Post-Doctoral position in Plant Biochemistry/Molecular 
Biology is available immediately at the Institute of Paper 
Science and Technology (IPST). The appointee will be 
applying standard biochemistry and molecular biology 
techniques to metabolic engineering, in particular to 
analyzing and increasing the production of a naturally 
occurring pulping catalyst in trees. The project is 
sponsored by a grant from the DOE Agenda 2020 program and 
the position will be for two years.

IPST is an independent graduate school funded by the Pulp 
and Paper Industry. Faculty teach and conduct research on 
all aspects of paper making and are vigorous participants in 
the scientific community, publishing widely.

The Forest Biology Group at IPST consists of four principal 
scientists supported by post-docs, technicians and graduate 
students. Current research focuses on embryogenesis, post-
transcriptional regulation of gene expression, xylem 
differentiation and flowering. Research is supported by 
competitive grants, contracts and internal funds. IPST is 
located on the campus of Georgia Tech in midtown Atlanta. 
Staff at IPST have access to Georgia Tech facilities. 
Candidates for this position should have a Ph.D. in Plant 
Molecular Biology or a related field. For more information
