Maize is a species in which the incredible resource of mutants is barely
tapped. This postdoctoral position is to oversee, conduct, and advance
novel research approaches for mapping of visible-expression genes; to
position these genes with cDNAs; and to seek evidence of biochemical
functions. This is an opportunity to experience the wide range of
mutants in maize; high-efficiency mapping; and strategies by which to
follow molecular clues to gene functions. Other ongoing research in the
group includes studies in quantitative trait inheritance; gene
expression and relationship to traits; and the Maize Genome database and
informatics, which are opportunities for additional experience.
Appointee will be a participant in the University of Missouri maize
group, which has broad training and research strengths that range across
breeding, molecular pathology, entomology, physiological genetics,
organelle genetics, cytogenetics, cell biology, and gene regulation.
Conduct of the project requires expertise in molecular genetics, and
knowledge pertinent to plant physiology and biochemistry. Review of
applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position
is filled. Send a CV; brief statement of research interests; and names,
phone numbers, and email addresses of 3 references to: Dr. Edward Coe,
