The USDA, ARS, Nematology Laboratory is seeking two Postdoctoral 
Research Associates, (Research Molecular Biologists).  The incumbents 
will employ functional genomics approaches for the study of 
development in plant-parasitic nematodes of agricultural importance. 
The primary goal is to clone and characterize genes involved in 
developmental arrest and sensory processing (the dauer pathway) and 
to identify novel methods to disrupt nematode development. One 
objective is the construction and analysis of stage-specific cDNA 
libraries to reveal novel targets for nematode control. Another 
objective is the adapataion of C. elegans transformation and gene 
knockout strategies (RNAi) for the study of gene function in plant 
parasitic nematodes. Refer to www.ars.usda.gov for the full text 
announcements (#RA-01-018L and #RA-01-014H) and complete application 
instructions. Salary starting at $42,724, commensurate with 
experience, plus benefits. A Ph.D. is required.There are some 
citizenship restrictions.

The Nematology Laboratory is located in Beltsville, Maryland, in the 
Washington, DC metropolitan area, a rich source of cultural and 
entertainment opportunities, and within a few hours drive of the 
mountains, beaches, and the Chesapeake Bay.
