Dear Bulletin Board Colleagues,
I currently have an opening for a M.S. level scientist working
with Arabidopsis for which I am seeking your aid in identifying
suitable candidates. Beginning in July, I will be initiating a
research group in the Plant Sciences group of Central Research
and Development at the DuPont Company in Wilmington, Delaware.
The group will focus on the metabolism of starch and other
carboydrates, using Arabidopsis as the model organism.
The successful candidate will participate in biochemical and
physiological studies of existing starch mutants, isolations of
new types of mutants and the cloning and characterization of
the genes identified by these mutations. The optimal candidate
will have a M.S. degree in a biological science and experience
with and knowledge of biochemistry, especially relating to
carbohydrate metabolism. The individual should be able to work
independently and with others and be capable of contributing
insights and ideas to the research projects. Practical and
theoretical knowledge of molecular biology and genetics and
experience working with plants are advantageous. Ideally, the
position would be filled beginning in July or August of 1991,
however, some flexibility in the starting date is possible.
Applications, including a curriculum vitae and three letters
of reference, should be sent to me. Until July 1, my address is:
Univ. of California Plant Gene Expression Center
800 Buchanan St.
Albany, CA 94710.
After that date, my address will be:
Plant Sciences Group
P.O. Box 80402
Wilmington, DE 19880-0402
