I'd like to bring to the attention of the Arabidopsis community the
availability of a postdoctoral fellowship in the life sciences at Brown
University, for an individual who qualifies according to the criteria
outlined below. The fellowship is tenable in any lab at the University,
although I would of course hope that candidates would consider working in
my lab. I can supply additional information and help if requested.
Please note the application deadline of 15 February.
