<BR>
Two postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Jeff<BR>
Bennetzen at Purdue University. &nbsp;The first position involves the 
study of<BR>
sequence changes in transposable elements, regulatory genes, disease<BR>
resistance genes, and housekeeping genes in various plant species, 
including<BR>
maize, rice, Arabidopsis, sorghum, wheat and barley. &nbsp;The Bennetzen<BR>
laboratory has generated many megabases of DNA sequence information for<BR>
orthologous regions of several genomes, and now needs application of<BR>
appropriate analytical tools to extract additional information from these<BR>
sequences and related information from other labs. &nbsp;Experience 
in molecular<BR>
evolution and good writing skills are a requirement of this position, which<BR>
will also involve some hands-on molecular biology. &nbsp;The second 
position<BR>
involves the isolation of two disease resistance genes that we have mapped<BR>
in sorghum, one associated with resistance to a fungal toxin and the other<BR>
associated with resistance to the parasitic weed called striga.<BR>
Tightly-linked markers are available for each of these loci, but more<BR>
markers are needed. &nbsp;Experience with DNA marker-based genetic 
mapping is<BR>
required for this second position, and expertise in the use of BAC 
libraries<BR>
would also be a plus. &nbsp;Each of these positions is funded for a 
minimum of<BR>
two years, and salaries will be commensurate with experience. &nbsp;If<BR>
interested, please contact Jeff Bennetzen by email<BR>
