The Agracetus Campus of Monsanto Life Sciences has several positions
open for PhD/MS/BS scientists with proven research experience. Please
see position description below and if interested, contact Andrea
Kersten (ajkers at monsanto.com). If appropriate, interviews can be set
up during upcoming 8th International Meeting on Arabidopsis Research,
June 25-29, 1997 in Madison, Wisconsin USA.
The Agracetus Campus of the Monsanto Life Sciences Company is
expanding its Madison, Wisconsin based programs in Nutrition and
Pharmaceutical Protein Production in Plants. We are currently seeking
qualified candidates in several areas. Excellent communication skills
and the ability to work in a multi-site, team based environment are
requirements. For BS/MS positions a degree in molecular biology or
biochemistry, and/or plant physiology is required. For PhD positions,
a doctorate in molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, or plant
physiology and productive postdoctoral experience is required.
BS/MS Protein Biochemist: Should be able to plan and perform a wide
range of protein techniques, focused on transgenic plant expression,
protein characterization, and downstream processing of target
proteins. An understanding of purification from complex matrices and
characterization of post-translational modifications is desirable.
PhD Plant Molecular Biologist, Nutrition: The successful candidate
will lead an effort to understand and manipulate seed composition,
with an initial emphasis on endogenous and transgene soybean
expression and analysis.
PhD Molecular Biochemist, Nutrition: The successful candidate will
contribute significantly to an effort to modify protein quality and
biosynthesis in plants. Demonstrated strengths in biochemistry and
protein structure/function are desirable.
PhD Molecular Biochemist, Pharmaceutical: The successful candidate
will contribute significantly to modify the host plant and protein
targets. A working knowledge of eukaryotic protein synthesis and
modification is essential. Postdoctoral experience in protein
chemistry or rational protein design is desired.
