I have a postdoctoral position open beginning ASAP and is initially for
one year. This is in the general area of the structure and function of
Photosystem II proteins. It will involve elucidating the protein-protein and
protein cofactor interactions ocurring between Photosystem II components
using site-specific labeling and mass spec analysis, protein crosslinking,
etc. Interested individuals should E-mail me and send a C.V. to:
Dr. Terry M. Bricker
Department of Microbiology
Louisiana State University
Baton Rouge, LA 70803
