[Arabidopsis] Post-doctoral Fellowship in Plant Biochemistry
(by schuber1 from life.uiuc.edu)
Wed Aug 29 11:09:40 EST 2007
Postdoctoral Research Associate, Plant Physiologist/Biochemist
Specialties: BC-Biochemical structure/Synthesis, MB-Molecular
Biology/Gene Regulation, ME-metabolism.
Other Specialties: oxidative signaling; protein phosphorylation;
The U. S. Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service,
Photosynthesis Research Unit, Urbana, IL, is seeking a postdoctoral
research associate for up to 2 years to study the impact of oxidative
signaling on protein phosphorylation in plants. Specific focus is on
the role of methionine oxidation, and this will be examined in vitro
using synthetic peptides and recombinant protein kinases, and in vivo
using transgenic plants with altered expression of genes encoding
specific methionine sulfoxide reductases. The overall objective is to
test the emerging concept that reversible methionine oxidation
participates in cellular responses to oxidative signals by attenuating
the phosphorylation of key cellular proteins. Requirements include a
Ph.D. in Plant Physiology, Molecular Biology or Biochemistry or a
related biological/physical science, and a working knowledge of
specialized techniques and procedures of molecular biology and protein
phosphorylation. Experience with manipulation of cDNAs, expression of
recombinant proteins, and Arabidopsis transformation is essential.
Experience with protein purification, enzyme assays and protein
phosphorylation is highly desirable. Citizenship restrictions apply.
Salary of $52,912 plus benefits. Application Instructions: Send
curriculum vitae, transcripts, and names and contact information of
three references (preferably by email) to: Dr. Steven C. Huber, USDA
