A post-doctoral research associate position is available in May 1998 in =
the USDA-ARS located on the campus of Iowa State University in Ames, IA. =
 The incumbent will participate in a multidisciplinary collaboration =
aimed at improving the nutritional, economic and agronomic value of corn =
kernels by designing and constructing novel genes that will be used for =
maize transformation.  The Iowa State University Plant Transformation =
Facility will carry out plant transformations. The incumbent will be =
responsible design and construction of genes for transformation and for =
analyzing transgenic tissues to asses the effects of transgenes. This =
may require the development of immunological or biochemical methods to =
quantify the desired traits.  The initial objective is to develop =
varieties suited to swine feed production by expressing key feed =
ingredients in corn kernels.  This is a unique opportunity to contribute =
to a contemporary crop improvement program involving  biochemists, =
nutritionists, veterinarians and plant breeders.

Annual Salary:  $37,507 (USD) + benefits.   The USDA is an equal =
