<P><B>Maize Evolutionary Genomics</B><B></B>

<P><B>Postdoctoral/Technical/Graduate Student</B>

<P>Positions are available to work with a consortium of scientists at North
<BR>Carolina State University, the University of Minnesota and the
<BR>University of California-Irvine to characterize diversity in the maize
<BR>genome, elucidate the biological forces that influence this diversity,
<BR>and investigate associations between candidate genes and agronomic
<BR>phenotypes.&nbsp; This project is funded for five years, providing
the
<BR>opportunity investigate these issues at an unprecedented level of detail
<BR>and on a genome-wide basis.&nbsp; Project members will have the opportunity
<BR>to work with a large and innovative group of statistical and
<BR>evolutionary geneticists, participate in the Summer Statistical Genetics
<BR>Institute at NCSU, and travel between cooperating labs.&nbsp; Positions
are
<BR>available Jan. 1, 1999.&nbsp; To apply, send a statement of research
<BR>interests, curriculum vitae, and the names, addresses and phone numbers
<BR>of three references to the individual(s) listed below.&nbsp; Additional
<BR>support for <B>postdoctoral</B> and <B>graduate students</B> are available
at each of
<BR>the participating institutions.

<P><B>Postdoctoral associate</B> to study molecular population genetics
and DNA
<BR>sequence diversity of maize and its wild relatives.&nbsp; A strong
background
<BR>in molecular evolution with experience in molecular methods, programming
<BR>and statistics is desirable.&nbsp; Apply to Dr. Brandon S. Gaut, Dept.
of
<BR>Ecology &amp; Evolutionary Biology, 321 Steinhaus Hall, Univ. of
California,
<BR>Irvine, CA 92697-2525 (bgaut at uci.edu).

<P><B>Postdoctoral associate</B> to study microsatellite (SSR) diversity
in the
<BR>maize genome.&nbsp; A background in molecular evolution, systematics
and/or
<BR>population genetics is required.&nbsp; Primary responsibility will
be in
<BR>experimental design, data analysis and working with technicians/students
<BR>conducting molecular analyses.&nbsp; Apply to Dr. John Doebley, Plant
Biology
<BR>Dept., Univ. of Minnesota, St. Paul, MN 55108
<BR>(doebley at maroon.tc.umn.edu).

<P><B>Postdoctoral associate</B> to investigate and associate nucleotide-level
<BR>variation at 19 candidate genes with agronomic phenotypes.&nbsp; A
background
<BR>in statistical, quantitative, and/or molecular genetics required.
<BR><B>Technician</B> to sample and sequence nucleotide variation at these
<BR>candidate genes.&nbsp; Experience with high-throughput sequencing and
PCR
<BR>required.&nbsp; These individuals will work under the supervision of
Drs.
<BR>Edward Buckler and Major Goodman.&nbsp; Apply to Dr. Edward Buckler,
Program
<BR>in Statistical Genetics, North Carolina State Univ., Raleigh, NC
<BR>27695-8203 (buckler at statgen.ncsu.edu).

<P><B>Postdoctoral associates</B> and <B>computer programmers</B> in genetic
data
<BR>analysis and computing. Applicants for postdoc should have interests
in
<BR>statistical analyses in molecular evolution/population genetics or
<BR>evolutionary quantitative genetics.&nbsp; Applicants for computing
positions
<BR>should have expertise in relational database construction and management
<BR>and working knowledge of C/C++. Experience in molecular biology,
<BR>genetics and bioinformatics is preferred. These individuals will work
<BR>under the supervision of Drs. Spencer Muse and Bruce Weir.&nbsp; Apply
to Dr.
<BR>Spencer Muse, Dept. of Statistics, Campus Box 8203, North Carolina
State
<BR>Univ., Raleigh, NC 27695-8203. (muse at stat.ncsu.edu,
