The Company currently employs 20 scientific staff with expertise in gene
isolation, gene expression, plant transformation and trialling.

We have an immediate vacancy for a Scientist to play an active role within
an established plant transformation group.  The successful candidate will
contribute to the improvement of existing gene transfer systems as well as
the routine production of large numbers of novel transgenic plants of
ornamental species.

We are seeking a talented and highly motivated scientist who would enjoy
working in an active group focused on achieving commercial objectives.

Experience in plant regeneration from cell or tissue culture and expertise
in Agrobacterium-mediated gene transfer methods is essential.  Molecular
