See enclosure

As advertised in Nature, Vol 366, 23 December 1993, applications are invited for a:



at the Institut de Biologie Physico-Chimique, Paris, France.

     Applicants should have a strong background in molecular biology techniques
and have an interest in problems of cell biology focused on protein folding and
assembly. Key aspects of the program encompass the regulation of membrane protein
assembly in the chloroplast and the search for protein motives essential for electron
transfer. The program involves site-directed mutagenesis of chloroplast genes encoding
protein subunits of the cytochrome b6f complex in the unicellular green alga
Chlamydomonas reinhardtii.

     The applicant will join a research group of about 10 research associates mainly
working on the biogenesis of chloroplast proteins. He/She will benefit from the pre-
existing tools required to undertake immediate site-specific protein modifications. A
first round of mutagenesis will provide information about residues involved at critical
sites of the function of cytb6f complexes;  subsequent rounds will be devised to
understand how the synthesis of several subunits is coordinated.

     The position is funded by the EEC Human Capital and Mobility Program. The
conditions are as formulated in the above-mentioned advertisement. Further
information can be obtained from Dr. Francis-Andr{ Wollman , Service de
Photosynth}se, IBPC, 13 rue P.et M. Curie, 75005 Paris, France. Tel 33 1 43 25 26
