     Research Positions

     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.

     In addition to a career with a global company, you'll enjoy a
     competitive salary and benefits package.  For consideration, please
     send your resume and contact information for three references to:
