I  currently have a number of positions open in my group (in
particular for a PhD student) to work on the Cph1 phytochrome from the
cyanobacterium Synechocystis (see Hughes et al. 1997, Nature, 386:
663; Hughes & Lamparter, 1999, Plant Physiol., 121, 1059-1068).  We
use molecular-genetic (expression cloning, in vitro mutagenesis,
protein chromatography, crystallography) and other methods to study
the structure and function of  this photoreceptor. In the process, we
collaborate with other groups in a  newly-established special research
program studying protein structure/function (SFB 498) as well as with
numerous colleagues throughout the world. In my lab I stress the
importance of a friendly atmosphere, not only excellent science.
