POSTDOCTORAL  RESEARCH  ASSISTANTSHIPS  IN  PLANT MOLECULAR  SCIENCE
=A314,317 - =A3 15,986 p.a. (under review)

Two postdoctoral positions funded by the BBSRC are available in the
Plant Molecular Science Group.  Both posts are for 3 years and are to
start as soon as possible.

1. With Dr G.I. Jenkins and Dr M.R. Knight (University of Oxford) on the
signal transduction processes coupling UV-A/blue photoreception to the
control of gene expression in Arabidopsis (see Plant Cell 8,
1555-1567).  Applicants should preferably have experience in molecular
biology and/or cell physiology, ideally in cell calcium measurements.

2. With Dr. G.I. Jenkins and Dr. A. Crozier on the role of
phenylpropanoid and flavonoid compounds in conferring UV protection
using  novel Arabidopsis mutants with elevated expression of flavonoid
biosynthesis genes and increased tolerance of UV-B and transgenic Lotus
corniculatus plants altered in the levels of putative protective
compounds.  Applicants with interests in UV protection, secondary
metabolism and/or experience of the analysis of plant products by HPLC
or GC would be especially welcome.

Applications, including a full CV and the names and (e-mail) addresses
of two referees should be sent to Dr. G.I. Jenkins, Division of
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Bower Building, University of
Glasgow, Glasgow G12 8QQ, UK.   Informal enquiries are welcome: Dr G.I.
Jenkins  (0141 330 5906; e-mail: g.jenkins at bio.gla.ac.uk) or Dr. A.
Crozier (0141 330 4613, e=96mail: a.crozier at bio.gla.ac.uk).  Closing date
2nd May 1997.
