Research Associate - Molecular Biology. Two postdoctoral positions are
work on peanut molecular biology. The successful candidates will
conduct research on
the molecular biology of drought and disease resistance, and improving
of peanut. Major goals will include identifying molecular markers for
drought resistance, cloning methionine-rich protein gene, and
transformation of peanut.
The appointees will be expected to have demonstrated experience in
biology techniques, which may include mRNA isolation and in vitro
and northern hybridization, RT-PCR, gene cloning/vector construction,
library using polyclonal antibodies, DNA sequencing and related
techniques, to detect,
describe and manage the behavior of the genes. The laboratory is fully
necessary instrumentation and supplies for the above research. A Ph.D.
science with extensive knowledge and experience in plant molecular
biology is required.
Applicants must submit a letter of application describing research and
and experience, resume, transcripts and three references to
