postdoc fellowships and grad assistantships

Sun Dec 6 16:04:16 EST 1992

The interdisciplinary research training program (RTP) on plant-
insect interactions at the University of Arizona invites applications
for postdoctoral fellowships and graduate research assistantships.
The RTP is funded by the NSF/DOE/USDA Joint Program on Collaborative
Research in Plant Biology.  Its goals are to provide effective
interdisciplinary training in plant and insect sciences and to
develop a better understanding of the complex interactions between
plants and insects to serve as a guide for the genetic engineering
of plants for protection against insects.  Some of the traits that
we hope to modify in plants are epicuticular waxes, sterol
composition, and trichome density.  We will employ Arabidopsis as a
model system to isolate genes involved in these traits.
Faculty from several departments including Biochemistry, Ecology
and Evolutionary Biology, Entomology, and Plant Sciences are
cooperating on this RTP.  For more information please write to
