Dear Netters:


We would like to bring your attention to a new Research Training Program at
the University of Arizona.  This Interdisciplinary Program in Plant-Insect
Interactions is designed to foster interactive research between plant
biologists who study genetics, molecular biology, and development, and
insect biologists who study the behavior, physiology, and biochemistry of
herbivorous insects.  Through an examination of model plant systems,
particularly Arabidopsis, it is hoped to be able to develop a mechanistic
understanding of the ways that plants and insects interact, with the
ultimate aim of manipulating these interactions for the purpose of
protection of plants from insect pests.  Support for this work comes from
the DOE/NSF/USDA Joint Program on Collaborative Research in Plant Biology.

We currently have available a series of positions for both Postdoctoral
Research Associates and for graduate students.  Applicants with primary
interests in either insect- or plant-oriented research areas are welcome.
Whether or not an applicant will be accepted will particularly depend on
their interdisciplinary interest and projects, and their willingness to
collaborate. Participation is expected in weekly discussion meetings and an
annual retreat.  As well as a stipend, support for research and travel is
available.

If you know of candidates that might be interested in postdoctoral
fellowships or graduate assistantships in Plant-Insect Interactions, please
encourage them to apply.  The terms of the funding require that candidates
be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
