Postdoc in protein structure/function

A postdoc position is currently available in my laboratory at the
Department of Plant Physiology, Umea Plant Science Centre, Umea
University, Sweden.  The position concerns studies on structure/
function properties of a higher plant UDP-glucose pyrophosphorylase
(UGPase), a key enzyme of UDP-glucose formation.  The primary goal of
this project is to identify regions in the amino acid sequence of UGPase
that are responsible for subunit/ subunit interactions, protein
oligomerization and binding regulatory proteins.  The position requires
strong background in gene manipulation (e.g. site-directed mutagenesis,
two hybrid system), and some experience with protein/enzyme work.  The
position is financed by the biotechnology grant from Umea University
initially for 12 months, with a possibility of extension for one more
year.  The position carries a yearly tax-free salary of 168,000-180,000
SEK, depending on experience.  A Ph.D. degree in an appropriate area is
required.  Qualified candidates are encouraged to send a letter of
interest (together with c.v. and e-mail addresses of two referees)
either through e-mail (preferably), fax or snail-mail to: Dr. Leszek A.
Kleczkowski, Department of Plant Physiology, Umea University, S-901-87
