Please, could you publish rapidly our offer for a postdoc position in 
Montpellier, south of France!? Thanks in advance, Sabine Zimmermann

Postdoctoral position in MONTPELLIER (south of France)
EU  Research Training Network on Novel Ion Channels In Plants (NICIP)

A postdoctoral researcher (european but not french) is looked for an 
attractive appointement of 3 years to participate in an European 
Project dealing with molecular and electrophysiological 
characterisation of new cation channels involved in nutrient 
acquisition and signalling. The joint project include 6 european labs 
which have scheduled exchange of fellows to provide additional 
training, workshops, annual meetings : (1) Bernd Mueller-Roeber / 
Katrin Czempinski, Potsdam, Germany; (2) Mark Tester, Cambridge, 
Great Britain; (3) H=E9l=E8ne Barbier-Brygoo, Gif-sur-Yvette, France; (4) 
Herv=E9 Sentenac / Sabine Zimmermann, Montpellier, France; (5) Enrico 
Martinoia, Z=FCrich, Switzerland; (6) Franco Gambale, Genova, Italy.

The group "Canaux Ioniques" in Montpellier working on potassium 
transport in the plant is one of the pioneers in the field of 
channel-mediated cation transport in plant cells. Recently, two new 
research programs have been developed - dealing on one hand with the 
ion channel family CNGC putatively involved in signalling mechanisms 
and on the other hand with transport processes involved in 
ectomycorrhizal symbiosis. The post-doc to be hired in our group will 
work especially on the characterization of members of the CNGC 
family. Experience in molecular biology or/and electrophysiology will 
be required. Training in electrophysiology (heterologous as well as 
homologous systems) can be provided. Working visits in joint labs 
will provide additional experiences, e.g. with respect to Ca2+ 
measurements, vacuolar studies, etc.
