Postdoctoral fellowship in biophysical analysis of directionality in 
type 1 reaction centers

Time frame: minimum of 2 years, extendable to 3 years (or more, 
depending upon availability of funds)
Start date: as early as Jan 1, 2005
Salary: $30,000/year + benefits with regular annual raises (assuming 
satisfactory progress)

Project: The individual will join an international research project 
probing directionality of electron transfer within type 1 RCs, with a 
focus on Photosystem I from green algae and cyanobacteria. The 
project will entail site-directed mutagenesis of Photosystem I 
polypeptides in an attempt to bias choice of electron transfer 
pathway, which will be done in the laboratory of Kevin Redding at the 
University of Alabama. Assessment of directionality will largely be 
done by kinetic optical spectroscopy in the group of Fabrice 
Rappaport at the Institut de Biologie Physico-Chimique in Paris. This 
technique will be supplemented by "static" and transient ESR 
(electron spin resonance) measurements at the ESR center at U.A. and 
elsewhere.

Interested applicants should have (or be able to obtain quickly) the 
right to travel and work as a postdoctoral researcher in both the 
U.S.A. and France. (Those who are not sure are encouraged to ask.) It 
is important that the applicant know that they will be expected to 
split their time between Alabama and Paris, although the exact 
arrangements are negotiable.

For those interested: Please send a current CV to Kevin Redding by 
email (Kevin.Redding at ua.edu). In addition, please have 3 letters of 
reference mailed to:
