The Department of Biological and Physical Sciences (USQ) and the Leslie
Research Centre (FSI-DPI) are involved in a joint ARC SPIRT funded project
to investigate the development of  Expressed Sequence Tags (EST's)
associated with pre-harvest sprouting (weathering) resistance in wheat.
The project has access to well-equipped facilities for both PCR based
mapping and marker analysis.  We are seeking a suitably qualified
Post-Doctoral Fellow to undertake the generation of EST's on specifically-
developed wheat populations.  These markers will be used to identify genes
associated with pre-harvest sprouting resistance which can then be used in
marker-assisted breeding programmes.  The appointee will be required to
assist with the supervision of research students and will also play a role
in the optimisation and investigation of new plant molecular marker

Applicants must possess, or be about to complete, a PhD in a relevant area
of molecular biology.  Familiarity with PCR - based technologies is
essential.  Experience with gene expression and/or gene regulation related
techniques is highly desirable.

The appointment is for a limited term of up to three years.

Salary Range:  Academic Level A $33,546.67 to $45,237.23 annum

How to Apply:  Before submitting an application, an information package
