The Field Museum seeks candidates for a two-year post-doctoral fellowship emphasizing interdisciplinary research as well as the central role of museum collections. The Boyd Fellowship program was created in honor of former Field Museum president Willard Boyd, who stressed the importance of interdisciplinary work to the intellectual strength of the Museum. The successful candidate will have a successful record of research in an area that bridges any of the Museum's scientific areas, including anthropology, archaeology, botany, systematics, evolutionary biology, conservation biology, paleontology, and zoology. Research must involve development and use of the Museum's collections, which span anthropology, botany, geology, zoology, as well as tissue collections for molecular work. Boyd fellows are expected to participate fully as part of the Field Museum academic community, to undertake high-quality original research, and to present their work to both academic and public audiences. The fellowship runs for two years, carries full Museum benefits, and a modest research budget. The Field Museum is an equal opportunity employer and actively encourages applicants from diverse backgrounds. Send cover letter, including outline of a project, C.V., and names of references to Chair, Boyd Post-Doctoral Fellow Search Committee, Office of Academic Affairs, The Field Museum, 1400 S. Lake Shore Drive, Chicago, IL 60605. Applications will be accepted until Sept. 30, 2002. Position available starting January 2003 and will remain open until filled.

During its Reproductively Active Phases. Hormones from hypothalamus, pituitary and gonad regulate reproduction. Of the pituitary hormones gonadotropins play an important role. However, in fishes like catfish, eel etc only one gonadotropin is reported so far. Therefore, to determine the number of gonadotropins and the role of these gonadotropins in the reproduction of the Indian catfish, Clarias batrachus, the present study was undertaken. Growth hormone has also been implicated in fish reproduction. Further, GH can be obtained from the same lot of pituitaries used for GTH purification. Therefore, in the present study GTH and GH were purified by column chromatography. The purified hormones were tested for their biological activity under in vivo and in vitro conditions. The parameters considered were steroidogenesis, induction of germinal vesicle breakdown (GVBD) and T3 production. Physical characterization of these fractions was achieved by SDS-PAGE. Employing mammalian and piscine antisera against various pituitary hormones, immunological characterization of the purified compounds were determined. Chemical characterization of these fractions was performed by partial N-terminal aminoacid sequencing. Antisera of these purified fractions were raised in New Zealand Rabbits. Cross reactivity of the antisera was determined by double immunodiffusion assay. Separate competitive ELISA systems were developed for each hormone. Sensitivity of the GTH II was 15.6pg/100ul, while that of the GH was 31.5pg/100ul. Each ELISA system was also validated by inter- assay and intra assay variations and recovery. Plasma levels of the GTH II and GH exhibited significant diel variations during the reproductively active phases. Such discontinuous secretion of these hormones may be indicative of the variations in the sensitivity of their receptors. Effects of various hormones on GTH II and GH were studied in stage specific fish. Actions of GnRH, sex steroids, indolamines and Morphine were season dependent. In addition to that sex steroids were found to be modulating the actions of sGnRH. GnRH induced GH secretion needs special mention. Effects of pesticides belonging to organophosphate, organochloride and carbamate were also monitored. All these pesticide groups were found to be inhibitory to both the GTH II and GH. However impact of carbaryl was more pronounced than the other two.

Jilin University, College of Earth Sciences, Master 1994, August -1998, July. Jilin University, College of Earth Sciences, Undergraduate Introduction Dr. Liushen have studied many lessons in University, such as maths, English, Physiochemistry, measurement, petrology (igneous rocks, metamorphic rocks and sedimentary rocks), identification of rock and ore, Geotectonic, Paleo-biology, Geology principle, Geological history, Geophysics, Geochemistry (including environment, deposit, isotope, petrology etc.), etc. My research interests and activities are concentrated on igneous geological processes. During my Master course, I have carried out a comprehensive study on the relation between the Cenozoic volcanic rocks and the uplift of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau in China. And firstly discovered that there exist Adakite rocks in northern Tibet, which is very important for the uplifted mechanism of Qinghan-Tibet plateau. At the same time, have investigated the ophiolite belt between Luogang-Rencuo, and believed it is the result of expansion setting of little oceanic basin at the beginning of after early Proterozoic. After the completion of Masters course, I qualified the doctoral fellowship of Institute of Geochemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IGCAS). And focussed my research activities on the relation of medium-mafic dikes and lithospheric extension in eastern China during Mesozoic. I have carried out detailed and comprehensive field work in the medium-mafic dikes of Shandong province, China. By research, I considered that the dikes are the result of partial melting of Enriched Mantle due to the interaction between the subducted ancient crust (Yangtze Craton) and the mantle peridotite. Additionally, the petrogenesis is associated with the subduction of Ancient Ocean (Su-Lu ocean instead of ancient pacific ocean) into NCC because of their geochemical feature of Continental margin arc. Based on the isotopic ages of the dikes, it is justifiable to conclude that there exist five stages lithoshperic extension at the least in Shandong terrain during Mesozoic. PAPERS 1.Liu Shen.

Dear Sir I I would like to apply for the post doctoral fellowship in geology branch(Geochemistry and Petrology). and post My resume as follows: RESUME ADRESS Guanshui Road 73#, Guiyang, Guizhou Province 550002 Peoples Republic of CHINA Institute of Geochemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences E-mail: lliushen@hotmail.com;shenliunet@sina.com Tel:+86-851-5891962 (or 13608525157) Fax: +86-851-5895574 Stage of education 2001, August - Studying in Institute of Geochemistry, Chinese Academy of Science, Dr. 1998, Sep.-2001, July. Jilin University, College of Earth Sciences, Master 1994, August -1998, July. Jilin University, College of Earth Sciences, Undergraduate Introduction Dr. Liushen have studied many lessons in University, such as maths, English, Physiochemistry, measurement, petrology (igneous rocks, metamorphic rocks and sedimentary rocks), identification of rock and ore, Geotectonic, Paleo-biology, Geology principle, Geological history, Geophysics, Geochemistry (including environment, deposit, isotope, petrology etc.), etc. My research interests and activities are concentrated on igneous geological processes. During my Master course, I have carried out a comprehensive study on the relation between the Cenozoic volcanic rocks and the uplift of Qinghai-Tibet Plateau in China. And firstly discovered that there exist Adakite rocks in northern Tibet, which is very important for the uplifted mechanism of Qinghan-Tibet plateau. At the same time, have investigated the ophiolite belt between Luogang-Rencuo, and believed it is the result of expansion setting of little oceanic basin at the beginning of after early Proterozoic. After the completion of Masters course, I qualified the doctoral fellowship of Institute of Geochemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IGCAS). And focussed my research activities on the relation of medium-mafic dikes and lithospheric extension in eastern China during Mesozoic. I have carried out detailed and comprehensive field work in the medium-mafic dikes of Shandong province, China. By research, I considered that the dikes are the result of partial melting of Enriched Mantle due to the interaction between the subducted ancient crust (Yangtze Craton) and the mantle peridotite. Additionally, the petrogenesis is associated with the subduction of Ancient Ocean (Su-Lu ocean instead of ancient pacific ocean) into NCC because of their geochemical feature of Continental margin arc. Based on the isotopic ages of the dikes, it is justifiable to conclude that there exist five stages lithoshperic extension at the least in Shandong terrain during Mesozoic. PAPERS 1.Liu Shen.

Arachis hypogea L. is one of the important oil seed crops in India. It contains high protein, carbohydrate, vitamins and minerals. The effects of amino acids (glutamine, serine, proline, glycine and valine and additives (PVP, Sodium citrate, activated charcoal) on plant regeneration from cotyledon and embryonal axis explants of peanut were studied. Cotyledon showed better response than embryonal axis explants. The amino acids (nitrogen source) enhanced the multiple shoot induction and additives (PVP) reduced the phenolic substances because the legumes are recalcitrant. Repetitive somatic embryogenesis was achieved in embryonal axis explant with the addition of haemoglobin. Agrobacterium transformation is influenced by a number of factors including bacterial strain, temperature, cell wounding, phenols, virulence genes, and host cell division. The sensitivity of the explants to kanamycin (selection marker) was first established before initiating the transformation experiment in order to determine the maximum concentration of kanamycin that permits the regeneration of transformed shoots, while preventing the growth of non-transformed shoots. As with recalcitrant legumes Agrobacterium mediated transformation of peanut appears to be cultivar and strain specific. 2.5% of cotyledons were cocultivated and kanamycin-resistant shoots were selected, of which 10 proved to be gus positive. Some primary transformants were chimeric, but others appeared uniformly transformed and showed 6.5% segregation of gus activity in progeny. In this study, Agrobacterium incorporated rice chitinase gene, were transferred to peanut explants and expression was observed in transformants. The efficient protocols have been standardized for organogenesis, repetitive somatic embryogenesis, factors influencing Agrobacterium mediated genetic transformation and chitinase gene transformation for disease resistant. In this present investigation, chitinase gene was introduced and expressed in the transgenic plants. These chitinase enzymes (PR protein) confer resistance to fungal disease called “tikka” disease in groundnut. Arachidic acid were isolated and quandified through HPLC and NMR and this compound were more in vitro explants.
