POSITION TITLE:	Research Associate (Postdoctoral)

POSITION DESCRIPTION:	A postdoctoral position is available to study auxin
signal transduction in tomato using molecular genetic approaches.
			Emphasis will be on the positional cloning and
characterization of 				the gene identified by the
diageotropica mutation.  The successful
	applicant will screen tomato genetic recombinants by CAPS or
			dCAPS methodology, identify putative clones within
a tomato 				BAC library, perform chromosomal
walks, and/or utilize 	`				transposon-tagged
tomato lines to identify and isolate the genomic
	sequence.  Genetic and molecular characterization will include
			rescue of the mutant phenotype by complementation,
promoter 				analysis, RNA and protein sequence
analysis, and putative signal 				transduction
pathway analysis. The position will be 1.0 FTE and
	carry a salary range of $25,000/year plus benefits.

QUALIFICATIONS: A Ph.D. in genetics, molecular or cellular biology, botany,
or a 				related field.  Demonstrated research
experience and skills in 				molecular biology
and genetics is required.  Previous experience
	with map-based cloning is preferred.  Good verbal and written
			English skills are essential.

CLOSING DATE:	For full consideration, apply by November 30, 1998;
applications 				will be accepted until position is

POSITION AVAILABLE:  November 1, 1998

APPLICATION MATERIAL:	Candidates should send a cover letter outlining
research experience and interests, curriculum vitae, and the name, address,
