In vivo detection of herbicides and their metabolism in plants

Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for a
postdoctoral position, supported by Rhône-Poulenc, working in
collaboration with Mark Fricker, George Ratcliffe and Nick White. The
prime aim of the programme is to investigate in vivo detection methods
for herbicides and their metabolism in plants, using Arabidopsis and
maize roots as model systems.

The project will use confocal microscopy to visualise and quantify
fluorescence intensities in three and four dimensions within living
tissues to give resolution at the cellular and sub-cellular level. The
confocal studies will be supported by in vivo nuclear magnetic resonance
spectroscopy and imaging.

The successful candidate should have a PhD in plant sciences or a
related subject, with a background in root physiology and an aptitude
for instrumentation.

The post is available from January 1997 and is tenable for up to two
years on the RS1A scale.

Informal enquiries should be directed to Dr Mark Fricker

two referees, to the Administrator, Department of Plant Sciences,
University of Oxford, South Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3RB. Please quote
ref no. PRA/1. Closing date for applications: 17th January, 1997.

The University is an equal opportunities employer.
