The Max-Planck-Institute for Molecular Plant Physiology in Golm, close to
Berlin, Germany invites applications for a

Postdoctoral Position

on Functional Genomics in Molecular Plant Physiology to be employed for a
period of 3 years (further extension possible) in the Department of Prof.
Dr. L. Willmitzer.

The successful applicant will join a team of molecular geneticists and
molecular plant physiologists to study genes and gene interactions involved
in the catalysis and (cross-)regulation of primary and secondary metabolic
pathways in Arabidopsis. The postholder will be responsible to apply and
further develop up to date techniques for genome expression analysis and
mapping and the establishment of novel genetic ressources.

Candidates should have a PhD in biology or biochemistry and extensive
experience in molecular genetics with knowledge in physiology and
biochemistry. Practical experience with advanced methods to study gene
expression profiles of tissues and organs and/or multiplexed molecular
marker analysis are highly desirable.

Applications including the usual documents (cv, certificates, list of
publications etc.) and the names of at least two referees should be sent to

Max-Planck-Institut fuer Molekulare Pflanzenphysiologie
Karl-Liebknecht-Str. 24-25, Haus 20, D-14476 Golm

This post will soon be advertised in Nature. The deadline for applications
is September 30, 1997.

Informal enquiries may be made direct to me.
