PLANT MOLECULAR BIOLOGY POSTGRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP
Project Title: Isolation of DNA Repair Genes from Arabidopsis thaliana
A Ph.D. studentship is available for three years to work on the isolation and
characterisation of genes involved in nucleotide excision repair in the
angiosperm, Arabidopsis thaliana. Several approaches have been initiated
including the selection of UV-sensitive plant mutants, probing of Arabidopsis
cDNA libraries using yeast DNA repair genes, and amplification of plant DNA
sequences using degenerate primers. This project is funded by the ARC.
Applicants should hold, or expect to receive, a first class or upper second
class Honours degree in Biology/Biochemistry/Genetics/Biotechnology with some
experience in molecular biology procedures. Candidates holding a masters
degree with relevant research experience are encouraged to apply.
The stipend is currently $16,000 and the School of Biological and Chemical
Sciences provides an additional supplement for research-related expenses.
Applicants should send one copy of a curriculum vitae including the names and
full contact information of 2 referees to: Prof. Bernard Kunz, School of
Biological and Chemical Sciences, Deakin University, Geelong, Victoria, 3217,
Australia. Applications close Friday 20 December, 1997.
