Postdoctoral Research Associate

A three year BBSRC funded post-doctoral position is available in the
photosynthesis research group to work on the mechanism of water oxidation by
photosystem II of plants and algae. The programme, directed by Dr Jonathan
Nugent and Professor Mike Evans will use a range of  biochemical and
spectroscopic techniques. A background in biochemistry, biophysics, physical
chemistry or spectroscopy would be an advantage. Training in new techniques
will be given.

Salaries will be on the RA1A scale(17293 to 20628 pounds) according to
qualifications and relevant experience.

Further information from Prof Evans or Dr Nugent, Department of Biology,
UCL, Gower Street, London WC1E 6BT, UK,
and applications should contain a CV with the names of two referees.

Closing date March 1st 1998.


Applications are invited for PhD studentships to start in October 1998.
Studentships involve a combination of biochemical, molecular biology and
biophysical techniques to investigate the structure and mechanism of action
of membrane protein complexes and redox active cofactors involved in
photosynthetic electron transfer.

Candidates should have or expect to have an upper second or first class
degree in a biological science or chemistry. Full studentships are only
available to UK citizens. The stipend will be increased by the department by
at least 500 pounds in the first year, 750 pounds in the second and 1000
pounds in the final year.

Closing date for studentships June 1998.
