        Available immediately, one graduate research assistantship at the
University of Idaho, to study DNA repair in plants.  The project involves
using Ac/Ds transposons and the damage caused when they excise to look at
plant DNA repair of the excision sites (see Plant J. 12:1419-1428 (1997)).
Work will involve use of DNA constructs introduced and recovered from plant
cells to examine DNA damage and repair during transposon excision and
analysis of Ac/Ds transposition in yeast cells.  The degree is through the
Molecular Biology Dept. graduate program, and the compensation package
starts at $16,100.
        Please send letter of interest, CV (including GRE scores and
description of previous lab experience) and the names of three references,
