Postdoctoral position in molecular biology and biochemistry at 
Imperial College London

A three-year position is available immediately to study the role of 
the FtsH family of proteases in the protection of cyanobacteria and 
plants from the damaging effects of light (so-called 
Photoinhibition). This project will exploit our recent discovery of a 
role for an FtsH protease in the early stages of repair of damaged 
photosystem two complexes in vivo. A combination of molecular biology 
and biochemical techniques will be used to investigate this protease 
in the cyanobacterium Synechocystis 6803.

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.

Salary on the RA1A scale: =A321,620 - =A328,625 per annum including 
London Allowance.

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.
