* SUMMARY___________________________________________________________

A microbiologist, biochemist or molecular biologist is required to work 
on the synthesis regulation of bacteriochlorophylls by green sulphur 
bacteria. The work will concentrate on the biosynthesis of 
Bacteriochlorophylls, in particular the final methylation step of BCHl d 
to BChl c, and the study and characterization of the enzyme(s) involved.


* QUALIFICATIONS____________________________________________________

The post would ideally suit any microbiologist of molecular biologist 
with experience in enzymology, protein characterization by site-direced 
mutagenesis, and general bacterial physiology. Previous experience with 
photosynthetic bacteria (isolation and culture) will be also positively 
considered. 


* LOCATION __________________________________________________________

The position will be based in Girona (NE Spain), within a group working 
on eco-physiology of green sulfur bacteria.


*APPLICATION ________________________________________________________

Applications, including a Curriculum Vitae and the names of two referees
should be sent to:

Dr L.J. Garcia-Gil, 
Faculty of Sciences, 
Campus Montilivi,  
University of Girona,
