Ph.D. Fellowships in Plant Biotechnology
Two, three-year Ph.D. student fellowships from the USDA National Needs
Graduate Fellowship Program in Plant Biotechnology are available in the
Department of Plant Pathology, University of Minnesota, St Paul.
Fellowship stipends are $17,000 annually. Fellowship program research
involves plant defense systems active against diseases caused by biotrophic
fungi. Research revolves about an ongoing transgenic plant program in
small-grained cereals (oat and barley). Fellowships will be filled within
the 1994-95 academic year. Each supports a Ph.D. candidate for 3 years.
Fellowship appointments can only be held by UnitedStates citizens pursuing
a full-time Ph.D. program in plant pathology. Fellowship applicants must
