Paradigm Genetics, Inc. is an Agricultural Biotechnology company
dedicated to the discovery of safer, more effective crop protection
chemicals and genetically enhanced seeds to improve worldwide food and
fiber production.  We are currently seeking highly motivated and
qualified people to join our Plant Research Team. Openings are available
for the following positions:

Group Leader Positions:

Plant Genetics: A Ph.D. is required, preferably in Plant Genetics or
Plant Molecular Biology with extensive postdoctoral experience.
Responsibilities include performance and evaluation of novel plant
transformation, gene expression, and gene modification systems in higher
plants. Responsibility for our greenhouse and plant growth facilities
and the supervision of scientists in our expanding Plant Research group
are additional duties.  Leadership experience in an industrial setting
is helpful.
Job # 104

Plant Physiology & Biochemistry: A Ph.D. is required, preferably in
Plant Physiology or Biochemistry with extensive postdoctoral
experience.  Responsibilities include performance of biochemical and
morphological analyses of plants under multiple environmental and
genetic conditions.  Responsibility for the organization and supervision
of scientists on this team and for experimental setup are additional
Job # 105

Ph.D./Post Doc Positions:

Plant Molecular Biology: A Ph.D. in Molecular Biology or Plant Molecular
Biology is required with doctoral or postdoctoral experience in the
field.  Responsibilities include library construction, development of
gene expression and gene modification systems, and manipulation of
transcription machinery in plants.  Experience in plant biology or plant
transformation is an advantage.
Job # 106

Plant Physiology: A Ph.D. in Plant Physiology or Biochemistry is
preferred.  The investigation of plant mutants and environmentally
stressed plants using various techniques including gene expression
profiling, developmental and stress response markers, and metabolite
analysis are the primary responsibilities.  Experience in plant anatomy
and development or plant biochemistry is an advantage.
Job # 107

Gene Expression Profiling: A Ph.D. in Molecular Biology or Plant
Molecular Biology is preferred.  The performance of gene expression
profiling of higher plants is the chief responsibility.  An integral
part of this duty is the development of arrays with increasing numbers
of targets and evaluation of novel technologies.
Job # 108

Computational Biology: A Ph.D. in Biology, Molecular Biology, or
Biochemistry is required along with extensive experience in computer
applications or computer sciences.  The implementation and improvement
of data mining tools for application in the plant functional genomics
field is the chief responsibility.  Experience with relational, object
oriented DBs is an advantage.
Job # 109

Bachelor and Master Positions:

Successful candidates hold a BS or MS in Plant Molecular Biology, Plant
Physiology, Plant Biochemistry or related field.  Responsibilities
include gene cloning, gene expression, library construction, plant
transformation, plant regeneration, and extraction of RNA, DNA or
metabolites from plant material.  2 years of lab experience for BS
position and 3 or more years of lab experience for MS position required.
Experience in an industrial setting is an advantage.
Job # 110

Successful candidates will be offered a competitive salary and benefits
package, stock options as well as an exciting team environment with
emphasis on achievement and career development.  For consideration,
please include the job number on your cover letter and submit a resume
