Sun Apr 7 12:10:10 EST 1996
A postdoc is required to join an expanding plant biochemistry group
situated in laboratories in the heart of Cambridge. We are interested in
membrane trafficking and protein targeting in plant cells. The aim of
the project is to develop techniques for the identification and analysis
of novel plasma membrane proteins. There are many unique aspects of the
plant plasma membrane, including the presence of receptors for hormonal
and developmental signals and proteins of the response to pathogens,
making this membrane particularly interesting for study. The project is
part of a collaboration with several other European laboratories to
develop a 2D PAGE database of plasma membrane proteins, using the model
plant Arabidopsis thaliana.
This project will involve cell fractionation and analysis of 2D gels, in
part using computer software. Technical assistance will be provided in
running the 2D gels. The interesting spots will be analysed through
N-terminal protein sequencing and peptide mass spectroscopy, in
collaboration with Dr Len Packman, in this Department. The trafficking
and targeting of particularly interesting proteins may be studied in
The position is funded by the EC for up to two and half years. Salary
will be on the RA1A scale, currently £14317-£19848 p.a., depending on
age and experience.
