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 appointees 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
