Research Associate - Molecular Biology. Two postdoctoral positions are
available to work on peanut molecular biology.  The successful
candidates will conduct research on the molecular biology of drought and
disease resistance, and improving protein quality of peanut.  Major
goals will include identifying molecular markers for disease  and
drought resistance, cloning methionine-rich protein gene, and
transformation of peanut.  The appointee will be expected to have
demonstrated experience in modern molecular biology techniques, which
may include mRNA isolation and in vitro translation, southern and
northern hybridization, RT-PCR, gene cloning/vector  construction,
screening  cDNA library  using polyclonal antibodies, DNA sequencing and
related techniques, to detect, describe and manage the behavior of the
genes.  The laboratory is fully equipped with necessary instrumentation
and supplies for the above research.  A Ph.D. in plant science with
extensive knowledge and experience in plant molecular biology is
required. Applicants must submit a letter of application describing
research and career interests and experience, resume, transcripts and
three references to Dr. Mehboob B. Sheikh, Plant Biotechnology Program,
Division of Agricultural Sciences, Florida A&M University, Tallahassee,
Florida 32307-4100.  Phone: (904) 561-2218; E-Mail: Sheikh1 at
Florida A&M University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action
