Metabolite-mediated regulation of gene expression in plants

This is an opportunity to conduct groundbreaking research into how organic
acids may regulate metabolism by signalling changes in gene expression.  We
have isolated Arabidopsis mutants that are disrupted in their ability to
utilise various organic acids.  Interestingly, a number of mutants are also
compromised in their ability to sense or utilise soluble carbohydrates.
You will determine the genetic and biochemical factors underlying the
altered carbohydrate metabolism in these mutants.  This is a BBSRC CASE
studentship in collaboration with AstraZeneca.  A full BBSRC stipend,
supplemented generously by AstraZeneca, will apply.
