BBSRC POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE IN PLANT DISEASE RESISTANCE

Applications are invited for a three-year Postdoctoral Research Associate
position funded by the BBSRC to characterise the protein encoded by the
Arabidopsis thaliana powdery mildew disease resistance gene RPW8.2. RPW8.2
(one of two related, functional genes at the RPW8 locus) confers
broad-spectrum resistance to powdery mildews and encodes a protein unrelated
to those encoded by other plant disease resistance genes. The research,
which is supported by a half-time technician, will involve analyses of
expression and localisation, studies of structure-function relationships
based around the construction of RPW8.2 mutants, and the characterisation of
interacting proteins. Applicants should have a PhD and some relevant
experience.

The School of Biological Sciences at the University of East Anglia in the UK
is a large interdisciplinary department that was awarded Grade 5 in the last
Research Assessment Exercise. Further details of the department and of other
linked institutes that form the Norwich Research Park can be accessed via:
http://www.uea.ac.uk/bio

The starting date is flexible within the period 1st November 2000 to 31st
March 2001. The salary will be on the Research and Analogous 1A scale,
=A316,286 to =A324,479 per annum, according to experience.

The project is a collaboration between Dr Mark Coleman and Dr John Turner.
Informal enquiries can be made to Dr Coleman (m.coleman at uea.ac.uk) and
applications for the post, in the form of a curriculum vitae together with a
letter of application and the names and addresses of at least two referees,
should be sent to Dr M J Coleman, School of Biological Sciences, University
of East Anglia, Norwich NR4 7TJ. Applications should arrive no later than 12
October 2000.
