Postdoctoral position in molecular biology and biochemistry at 
Imperial College London

A three-year position is available immediately to study how plants 
protect themselves from the damaging effects of light (so-called 
Photoinhibition). The project will focus on the role of cytochrome 
b-559 in the chloroplast and will involve the construction and 
analysis of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii mutants.

The project builds upon earlier studies [Morais et al. (1998) J. 
Biol. Chem. 273, 29315-29320] and will involve working in a small 
team. The successful candidate is expected to have some expertise in 
molecular biology and/or biochemistry and to be highly motivated. 
Training will be offered where necessary in molecular biology 
techniques and the purification and characterisation of 
membrane-bound protein complexes. Spectroscopic characterisation of 
the mutants will be partly carried out on research visits to the 
laboratory of Prof Charles Dismukes, Princeton University, USA.

Salary in the range =A318,909 - =A327,347 per annum including London Allowan=
ce.

CVs including relevant experience and the addresses of two referees 
can either be posted or emailed to Dr Peter Nixon, Department of 
Biochemistry, Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine, 
London, SW7 2AY.
