Position Available: Postdoctoral Research Associate 

Department of Plant Pathology, North Carolina State University - A
position is available for a motivated molecular biologist to investigate
the molecular mechanisms of plant parasitism by Heterodera glycines, the
soybean cyst nematode (SCN). These soil-dwelling, microscopic worms invade
the roots of soybean plants and cause millions of dollars in soybean yield
losses each year. SCN has a very intricate host-parasite relationship that
involves elaborate modifications of plant root cells by compounds secreted
by the nematode. Efforts have been initiated to identify these nematode
secretions and the genes that encode them, and to determine the expression
and function of these nematode gene products during plant parasitism. Lab
experience in eukaryotic molecular biology, protein chemistry, and
immunotechniques is essential. Experience in nematology, plant pathology,
histology, and plant science is desirable, but not required. The position
is for two years, starts at $25,000/year plus benefits, and will begin
September 1, 1995 contingent upon scheduled receipt of awarded grant
funds. Send resume, transcripts, and three letters of recommendation by
August 1, 1995 to Dr. Eric L. Davis, Department of Plant Pathology, Campus
Box 7616, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC 27695. Phone (919)
515-6692, FAX (919) 515-7716, or email rick at unity.ncsu.edu. North Carolina
State University is an EO/AA employer.
