1.  Post-doctoral position to investigate the interaction between 
Aspergillus flavus and corn at the molecular and cellular level.  The 
scientist will be responsible for developing immunological methods 
for quantifying the amount of A. flavus infection on inoculated ears. 
Candidates with experience in molecular biology, immunology, plant 
pathology or related plant sciences are encouraged to apply.

2.  Post-doctoral position to study the signaling pathway in a novel, 
host plant resistance system that leads to the production of a unique 
defense protease that accumulates in response to caterpillar feeding 
in corn.  Applicants with expertise in plant molecular and cellular 
biology are encouraged to apply.

Applicants should indicate the position that for which they are 
applying.  A Ph.D. degree or equivalent is required.  Please send CV 
and names of three references to Dr.  Dawn S. Luthe 
(dsluthe at ra.msstate.edu)
