Missouri (Kansas City). Successful applicants will work in a research
team studying:

1) posttranscriptional control of gene expression and its relationship
with reproductive development in Arabidopsis
2) mRNA processing and control of mRNA release from the site of
transcription in yeast

Successful candidates will have a B.S. or masters (or equivalent) in
molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, genetics or plant
physiology, and a solid background in basic molecular biology and
genetic techniques. Experience in bioinformatics is a plus. These
positions are open from January 2007.

Kansas City is a major cosmopolitan center featuring dynamic cultural
environment, vibrant music scene, and exciting opportunities for
year-round recreational activities. UMKC School of Biological Sciences
is located next to the Stowers Institute, offering ample opportunities
for collaboration.

Applications, including CV, a brief statement of research experience and
interests as well as contact information of two referees, should be

discipline, and a 3.0 grade point average (3.2+ expected), 3 letters of
recommendation from those familiar with the student's academic and
intellectual capabilities, a minimum GRE Aptitude Test score of 1500
(213 computer score) is necessary, (1800+, or 250+ computer score,
