A postdoctoral position is available starting on or after April 1st, 2011, for a project on chloroplast protein translocation channel and its paralog in Arabidopsis. The ultimate goal of the project is to gain insights into the evolutionary process underlying the establishment of protein import machinery. The project will initially use various molecular genetic and biochemical tools to address several defined questions. Some of the tools are already available, and others need to be developed. 

The article in the following link provides some background information (note a typo in the first sentence of Introduction in page 168. oxidative => oxygenic).

Applicants must have a PhD and a strong background in molecular genetics with model organisms. Previous experience in chloroplast biology and protein biochemistry is desirable. The initial appointment is for one year and its renewal is highly possible, depending on the performance of the individual. 

To apply, please send a full C.V. including a brief description of research experience and interests, and names/email addresses of three references via email to:
