POST-DOCTORAL POSITION AVAILABLE FOR STUDIES OF PHOTOTAXIS RECEPTORS AND
SIGNAL TRANSDUCTION IN CHLAMYDOMONAS
A new position is available for a post-doctoral fellow interested in
sensory receptor structure/function and signal transduction mechanisms.
The general focus in the lab is on the microbial rhodopsins, a large and
diverse family of photoactive, 7-transmembrane-helix, retinal proteins
found in haloarchaea, proteobacteria, cyanobacteria, fungi and algae.
In particular two function as photosensors for Chlamydomonas reinhardtii
phototaxis (see Sineschechov et al. Proc Natl Acad Sci USA. 99,
8689-8694. 2002). We would like a molecular cell biologist to join our
group to work on the Chlamydomonas sensory rhodopsins. Annual salary in
the low 30's, depending on experience. For more information, please
contact: Prof. John Spudich, Director, Center for Membrane Biology,
University of Texas at Houston, email: John.L.Spudich at uth.tmc.edu.
Interested applicants please send a CV and names of 3 individuals
willing to write letters of recommendation.
