POSTDOCTORAL POSITION ANNOUNCEMENT IN MOLECULAR EVOLUTION OF PLANT VIRUSES
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Applicants are being sought to fill TWO positions in
molecular evolution of plant viruses. Position one will involve molecular
population biology, epidemiology, and evolutionary mechanisms of peanut
stunt cucumovirus. Several virus collections are already available for this
study. Position two will involve a study of 1.) the role of viral and host
components of the replicase in the generation of variability, and 2.) the role
of quasispecies in the biology of cucumber mosaic cucumovirus, including the
ability to overcome resistance. More detailed descriptions of both projects
are available on request.
REQUIREMENTS: A Ph.D. in Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, or related field,
with experience in evolution or virology helpful.
SALARY and APPOINTMENT: Base salary is US$24,000/year, depending on experience
with funding available for 3 years.
STARTING DATES: July and August 1995
