(Ref. S69-ARF)

Circa £24,000 per annum
Fixed-term, three-year appointment

We have an exciting Postdoctoral Research position which will
investigate the role of cytoplasmic and chloroplastic Ca2+ signalling in
the timing and induction of flowering in Arabidopsis thaliana. This
ambitious project will apply new, GM technologies for manipulating and
imaging subcellular [Ca2+] in vivo, using both aequorin (photon-counting
imaging) and "cameleon"-GFP's (laser scanning confocal microscopy). The
molecular effects of altered Ca2+ signalling will be investigated using
a variety of techniques, notably real time quantitative PCR. The
successful applicant will integrate a new research group led by Dr. John
Love, in the Plant & Microbial Sciences Division and the Bio-imaging
suite of Exeter University.
