Post-Doc Position in Microbiology

Tue Nov 1 23:24:50 EST 1994

Postdoctoral Research Associate 
A postdoctoral research associate is needed for a molecular analysis of 
P. cepacia.  The project will include developing enrichment procedures 
for the selective isolation of P. cepacia from nature as well as 
developing new molecular tools for analyzing the genome of P. cepacia.  
Genome analysis will include both physical methods (PFGE) as well as 
genetic methods (conjugation, chromosome mapping, and cloning).  A major 
effort will be placed on cloning genes from P. cepacia that are involved 
in biodegradation and analyzing the ability of P. cepacia to recruit 
foreign genes and evolve new catabolic pathways for the degradation of 
xenobiotic compounds.  The position is available immediately and will be 
under the supervision of Gerben J. Zylstra and Norberto Palleroni.  
Please send a letter of interest including a CV to Gerben J. Zylstra, 
Center for Agricultural Molecular Biology, Rutgers University, P.O. Box 
231, New Brunswick, NJ, 08903-0231.
