2-year postdoc position, at LIPM, Toulouse, France__
To study the mode of action of the F-box "GALA" type III effector 
proteins of /Ralstonia solanacearum /on Arabidopsis.

_Location:_
The LIPM (www.toulouse.inra.fr/centre/lipm), in Toulouse, France, is a 
dynamic and international group of researchers studying plant-microbe 
interactions. It provides an excellent scientific environment and 
facilities to carry out this project.

_The Position:_
Together with the project leader, a PhD student and technical assistance 
(protein biochemistry, plant transformation and microscopy facilities), 
the candidate will carry out Arabidopsis molecular genetics, cell 
biology and E3-ubiquitine ligase related biochemistry in order to 
identify and characterize the targets of the GALA proteins injected by 
/R. solanacearum /in plant cells in order to understand the contribution 
of these type III effectors to the virulence of this bacterium.

The candidate should have experience, with a proven track record of 
publication, in plant molecular genetics, protein biochemistry and/or 
cell biology. The candidate is expected to have a strong enthusiasm (not 
necessary previous experience) for plant-pathogenic bacteria 
interactions. Good English scientific communication skills are essential.

Annual Gross salary of 25 611 EUR (expected Net salary around 1800 
EUR/month including health and unemployment benefits).
Starting the 1^st of February 2008 or soon after.

 _Application:_
Please send email inquiry and application, with subject header "postdoc 
GALA", to Nemo Peeters (peeters from toulouse.inra.fr
