A Post-Doctoral position in Plant Molecular Biology is available 
immediately at the Institute of Paper Science and Technology 
(IPST). The appointee will be applying standard molecular biology 
techniques to tree improvement (gene cloning, transfer and 
analysis methods). The project is described below:

EARLY FLOWERING OF HARDWOOD AND SOFTWOOD TREES. Flower formation 
in softwood and hardwood trees will be investigated through the 
isolation and expression analysis of homologs of floral homeotic 
genes and identification of novel genes. Candidates for this 
position should have a Ph.D. in Plant Molecular Biology or a 
related field.

IPST is a private, independent graduate school funded by the 
Pulp and Paper Industry, located on the campus of the 
Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech). IPST faculty 
members teach and conduct research on all aspects of the
