TWO POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS AVAILABLE 

Population Biology of Transgenic Plants

Opportunity to join a multidisciplinary program investigating the ecological and
evolutionary consequences to a plant of carrying introduced genes.  Initially, 
work will entail genetic transformation of plants in the species Arabidopsis 
thaliana and Brassica sp. In subsequent years, lab work will be combined with 
field experiments. In this project, we will  investigate how the production of 
plant defensive compounds affect both plant performance and the evolution of 
resistance in plant pests. Results will have implications for the risk 
assessment of transgenic crops. Experience in gene manipulation and plant 
transformation is desireable but not required.  Opportunity to develop 
independent projects.  Duration of  postdoctoral position and starting time are 
both negotiable. If interested, send statement of research interests, CV, 
reprints and names/ phone numbers of three personal references to Dr. Joy 
Bergelson, Department of Biology, Box 1137, Washington University, St. Louis, MO
63130.

Population Biology of Arabidopsis thaliana

Opportunity to join an ongoing program studying the molecular evolution  and 
ecological interactions of natural populations of Arabidopsis thaliana.  
Research focuses on both patterns and levels of natural genetic variation, as 
well the ecological consequences of this variation for plant competitive 
interactions.  Initially, work will entail an RFLP study of natural populations.
In subsequent years, lab work will be combined with field experiments. Lab 
experience is desireable but not required.  Opportunity to develop independent 
projects.  Duration of  postdoctoral position and starting time are both 
negotiable. If interested, send statement of research interests, CV, reprints 
and names/ phone numbers of three personal references to 
Dr. Joy Bergelson, Department of Biology, Box 1137, Washington University, St. 
Louis, MO 63130.
