Dear Colleagues:

Please pass on the following announcement for a molecular geneticist
position within CIMMYT's Applied Biotechnology Center to any interested
persons. We are projecting a large increase in our efforts to use molecular
techniques in classifying CIMMYT maize and wheat germplasm and, thus, we
are looking for an innovative scientist to lead this effort.

The person will be a member of the Molecular Genetics Team within the ABC
and will develop projects to use molecular markers to characterize CIMMYT
maize and wheat germplasm.  Responsibilities will include the design and
implementation of appropriate large-scale marker technologies for germplasm
characterization,  data acquisition and analysis and development of
interfaces to allow scientists to access and utilize the characterization
data.  Other responsibilities include providing supervision of scientific
and technical staff in other Applied Molecular Genetics projects, taking
part in administrative activities, preparing reports and publications of
results, and assisting in training courses, formal and informal.

Qualifications include a Ph.D. (or equivalents years of experience) in
