Effective immediately, a position is available to study the role of
chloroplast signal recognition particle (cpSRP) in the biogenesis of
thylakoid membrane proteins. We have recently shown that chloroplast
SRP is a complex of 54 and 43 kD proteins and is utilized for the
biogenesis of LHCP, the major thylakoid membrane protein.  Genes
encoding both cpSRP subunits as well as the corresponding mutants in
Arabidopsis have been isolated. Projects include defining
structure-function relationships determining protein-protein
interactions between cpSRP and substrate, investigating the biochemical
properties of cpSRP, and analysis of plants that are defective in this
transport pathway.


Applicants should have a Ph.D. and research experience in protein
biochemistry and/or molecular biology.  Initial appointment will be
made for one year with the possibility of renewal. Interested
candidates should send a current CV and the names, telephone numbers,
and email addresses  of three references to:
