In the Department of Biology at the University College London we are looking for
two POST-DOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSISTANTS.
1) A three year position within the Photosynthesis Research Group:
a multidisciplinary team using biophysics, biochemistry and molecular biology,
to study the biogenesis and functioning of the photosynthetic apparatus.
The appointee will use magnetic resonance techniques (EPR and ENDOR) to study
photosystem II in wild type and mutants of Chlamydomonas and cyanobacteria.
Experiance in these techniques is desirable but not essantial as training will
be given. This post is funded by the BBSRC.
2) A three year position to study foreign gene expression in eukaryotic algae.
An experiance molecular biologist is sought to investigate the importants of
cis-acting elements such as introns and SARs in the expression of transgenes
in Chlamydomonas, and to develop a transformation system for the commercially
important alga Dunaliella. This post is funded by the Leverhulme Trust.
