Dear Colleagues,
ICGEB has accepted me for a short training course of 5 days on GMO risk assesment at Italy which is starting from 27 September 2010.
Unfortunately they are not even partially funding the visit. Please any one who know about any organization or funding agency which may encourage young scientist and may finance my training visit to Italy for just 5 days.

Hello Everyone,

If you are a researcher from USA and are interested in genome 
annotations, here's an excellent opportunity. For those of you who are 
USA residents and researchers apply for the travel awards to attend Gene 
Annotation Workshop 
(http://www.aspb.org/pb-2010/specialevents.cfm#databases) to be held at 
the ASPB's Plant Biology 2010 meeting (http://www.aspb.org/pb-2010/). If 
selected, the travel award will cover the cost of your Plant Biology 
2010 meeting registration cost. We expect to award 10-20 participants.

Where to apply:
   URL: http://plantontology.org/workshop/pb2010.html

Application Deadline
    July 15, 2010

Who can apply:
    # Any scientist/researcher/student working and/or studying in
      the USA only with an interest in Plant Biology and is
      expected to attend the Plan Biology meeting in Montreal.
    # Preference will be given to those representing the women,
      minority and underrepresented groups.
    # Preference will be given to those from the qualifying
      under-represented minorities at accredited 4 year
      universities and faculty at qualified US
      minority-serving institutions.
    # Preference will be given to young US scientists including
      graduate students, postdoctoral scholars and young faculty.

Applicants are invited for a postdoctoral position in the laboratory of Dr. 
Min Ni at the University of Minnesota, starting date soon or negotiable. 
Experience in molecular and cellular biology, genetics, and biochemistry 
will be a plus. Our lab is currently focused on two separate research 
areas: light-regulated de-etiolation and stomatal opening response and 
Arabidopsis seed development. We have identified and characterized a few 
key regulators involved in these processes. We aim to study their actions 
and interactions with other components in these signaling pathways by using 
a variety of tools in molecular genetics, molecular biology, and 
biochemistry. The successful applicant will also have an opportunity to 
characterize a few more mutants, to clone the mutated genes from these 
mutants, and to identify additional components in the systems. For further 
information, please visit our web site 
(http://www.cbs.umn.edu/plantbio/faculty/NiMin/). The University of 
Minnesota at twin cities provides excellent research facilities and 
educational opportunities (http://www.cbs.umn.edu/biodale/). Diverse 
cultural and recreational activities are easily accessible around the 
Minneapolis/St. Paul “Twin Cities” area 
(http://www.exploreminnesota.com/home.aspx). To apply, please send, by 
e-mail, letter of application, curriculum vitae, and names of three 
references (including address, phone, and email address) to 
nixxx008 from tc.umn.edu. Min Ni, Department of Plant Biology, 250 Biosci 
Center, 1445 Gortner Avenue, University of Minnesota, St. Paul, MN 55108 
(Phone: 612-625-3702). The University of Minnesota is an equal 
opportunities employer.
