To all interested parties:


Washington State University announces the availability of a research
associate ("post-doc") position studying in the area of wine (grape)
microbiology. The successful applicant will become a member of a team of
faculty, staff, and students performing independent and collaborative
research. Research areas to be studied are (a) metabolic interactions
between yeast (Saccharomyces) and lactic acid bacteria (Oenococcus oenos
and Lactobacillus), (b) inducement of malolactic fermentation in wines,
and/or (c) issues related to Saccharomyces nutrition during fermentation.
In addition to working on these specific research projects, the research
associate will have the opportunity to guide graduate and undergraduate
students and to assist in the preparation of grant proposals. Funding for
the position is provided by the Washington Wine Grape Advisory Board, a
board comprised of members of the rapidly growing Washington grape-growing
and wine industries. The position will be funded for a period of at least 1
year with the possibility for 1 year renewals.

Required qualifications: Ph.D. in food science, enology, microbiology, or
related field; skills/techniques related to the culturing, enumeration,
identification, and biochemistry of microorganisms, particularly those
important in wine fermentations (Saccharomyces and lactic acid bacteria);
evidence of strong oral and written communication skills. Desired
qualifications: Experience in wine research, especially in the area of wine
microbiology. Additional information can be obtained by contacting Dr.
Edwards (telephone: 509-335-6612; email: edwardsc at wsu.edu).

The Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition is housed in a new
building that features modern laboratories and pilot plant facilities.
Faculty on the main campus in Pullman strongly interact with faculty based
at the experiment station in Prosser, a site located 160 miles west of
Pullman in the heart of the Washington wine industry. Currently, the state
boasts a total of >12,000 acres of Vitis vinifera grapes and 100 wineries.
The wine research program in Pullman is comprised of fully-equipped
laboratories for microbiological, chemical, and chromatographic (GC and
HPLC) analyses. Four graduate students and two undergraduate students
currently work in the laboratory. More information about the department can
be found on its web page at http://av.fshn.wsu.edu.

To apply, send a letter of application addressing specific qualifications
and research interests, a current vitae, and a list of three references
