A 3 year position funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Science
Research Council (UK) is available immediately to work on metabolic
regulation of gene expression in Arabidopsis thaliana. =20

Photosynthesis associated genes are subject to carbon metabolite
repression.  We have isolated a number of Arabidopsis thaliana mutants=
do not exhibit this response. The research will involve a molecular,
biochemical and genetic analysis of these mutants.  This work should
provide new insight into the regulatory mechanism involved in carbon
metabolite repression.  It should also establish if other genes,=
 such as
those encoding the glyoxylate cycle enzymes malate synthase and isocitrate
lyase (involved in lipid breakdown), are subject to the same type=
control. =20

Applicants should have a PhD in a biochemistry/molecular biology=
discipline preferably with experience in using genetic approaches=
address specific biological problems.  The successful applicant will=
an active research group studying metabolite control of gene expression
with a particular emphasis on regulation of the lipid breakdown process.

Starting salary will be up to  =A315986 depending on experience.

Applications, including a full CV and the names and address of two=
should be sent to Dr Ian Graham, Plant Molecular Science Group, Division
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Institute Biomedical and Life
Sciences., University of Glasgow, Glasgow  G12 8QQ  U.K before 10th
