This is forwarded announcement from Dr. S. Karpinski:

Two Ph.D. student positions, Dept. Botany, Stockholm University,

If you are interested to make a Ph.D. in the field of plant stress and
molecular biology, using Arabidopsis as a model system, contact with us.
We have two available positions for Ph.D studies. Successful candidates
will join a group of three researchers working on different aspects of
redox signalling. One Ph.D. project will focus on isolation and
characterisation of photooxidative stress tolerant mutants. Second project
will focus on molecular and biochemical mapping of the signalling cascade
controlled by redox status of the plastoqinone pool (Science, 1999, 284,
654-658). The positions require molecular, genetical, biochemical and
biophysical skills, some of which the candidate will acquire during the
Ph.D. programme.

Both positions will start as 2-year fellowships (12.500 SEK/month)
followed by 2-year employment (the salary regulated by the faculty). The
positions may be associated with up to 20% teaching, but will then be
prolonged accordingly.

If you are interested in such a position, please contact Dr. Stanislaw
Karpinski for more information, either at the current address: Department
of Botany, Stockholm University, SE-106 91 Stockholm, Sweden, Phone:
