Control of Source-Sink Relations by Carbohydrate Regulation of Gene Expression

The above scientific programme involving 13 partners throughout Europe has
recently been selected for funding by the European Union. The programme
will use genetic, molecular and biochemical approaches to investigate sugar
sensing and signal transduction components in Arabidopsis. It will also
characterise effects of changes in these components in terms of metabolism,
physiology and growth of plants. 

As part of this programme a 3 year postdoctoral position is available in my
laboratory. The project will involve a molecular genetic characterisation
of Arabidopsis thaliana mutants that are carbohydrate insensitive (cai).
Preliminary data on some of these mutants was presented at the recent
Arabidopsis meeting.

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

Applications, including a full CV and the names and address of two referees
should be sent to Ian Graham at the address given below.Information on
Glasgow,The University and The Plant Molecular Science Group can be

As part of the same EU programme another 3 year postdoctoral position is
available in the laboratory of Dr Steve Smith, University of Edinburgh. The
emphasis of this project will be on the role of sugar transporters in
regulating gene expression. This work will involve manipulating sugar
transporters in transgenic plants and isolation of T-DNA or transposon
insertion mutants. For more information on this project please contact
