Plant Molecular Biologist Position
AG Gene Transfer IPK Gatersleben, Germany
The IPK Gatersleben is a public research centre, with the objective to carry
and applied research in the field of molecular plant breeding
The Gene Transfer Group at the IPK Gatersleben
(http://www.ipk-gatersleben.de/englisch/abtl-ags/ipke-gt.htm) has efficient
transformation systems for the production of transgenic wheat, barley, rye
and forage grasses in place. The selected scientists will work in an
focussing on the incorporation of quality traits in cereals and grasses,
transformation technology. The current opening will be funded for a period
years from June 2001 at the scale BAT-IIa-OST.
Since vector construction and molecular analysis of transgenic cereals with
the aim of
promotor function analysis will be the major activities of the selected
expect extensive experience with standard molecular biology techniques.
with plant tissue culture and -transformation is a plus.
