The UK is a world leader in the genetics of temperate small grain cereals
such as wheat and barley. The BBSRC and SERAD are jointly funding a 3.1M
programme as part of the BBSRC's Investigating Gene Function Initiative to
create key cereal genomic resources, which will be important for the
international competitiveness of UK science.  The resources generated will
include EST's from key stages of cereal grain development, mutagenised
populations and a hexaploid wheat BAC library.  Applications are invited for
the fifteen, temporary, three year research positions listed below, which
are available within this coordinated programme for research to be carried
out at the above Centres.

Scottish Crop Research Institute (SCRI)

Postdoctoral Research Scientist Ref: GEN/2/00 A highly motivated PDRS and a
skilled Research Assistant Ref: GEN/3/00 (Band 7) are required for the
construction of a deletion mutation grid in barley for gene function

Senior Research Scientist Ref: GEN/4/00 An experienced molecular geneticist
is required to participate in and supervise the development of a public
transcriptome resource for the developing barley grain. Appointment will be
made at either PDRS or SPDRS depending on experience. Research Assistant

support to the above post.

Bioinformaticist Ref: GEN/6/00 (PDRS) A postgraduate bioinformaticist is
required to develop a database for collation and presentation of sequence
information.  The postholder will work closely with lab based molecular
biologists and bioinformaticists.
