Two Graduate Positions Available in Plant Molecular Biology/Biotechnology
Two graduate positions are available to examine the expression of heterologous cell wall degrading enzymes in plants and to determine the composition and efficacy of enzyme cocktails in cellulose digestion. The students will be part of a multidisciplinary network focusing on the development of cellulosic ethanol as an alternative biofuel.
Students will work within a broad program in molecular biology and biotechnology at the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Research Station, which houses state of the art facilities for molecular biology research, and is located just 10 minutes from the University of Western Ontario campus.
Students will be enrolled in the Department of Biology and will undertake normal departmental duties such as laboratory instruction.
Candidates should apply for admission to the department of Biology, University of Western Ontario. (see http://www.uwo.ca/biology).
