Two postdoctoral/research affiliate positions are available to study 
host-encoded  barley yellow dwarf virus resistance in wheat and barley.  
This research will primarily involve identifying and isolating genes for 
BYDV resistance and determining the molecular genetic and biochemical 
basis for this resistance.  Other research areas include using a 
replicase-mediated approach to obtain BYDV resistant transgenic wheat and 
barley plants [Anderson et al., 1992, PNAS, 89:8759-8763; Zaitlin, 
Anderson et al., 1994, Virology, 201:200-205].  Applicants must have 
demonstrated research experience in molecular biology. Applications will 
be accepted until the positions are filled.  The starting salary is 
$28,648.00 with benefits.  A letter indicating research experience and 
interests, a curriculum vitae, graduate transcripts, and three letters of 
recommendation should be sent to:
