conversion. The first position (up to 24 months) is a joint appointment 
between the groups of Peter Nixon and Jim Barber and will involve the 
study of the mechanism of photosynthetic water oxidation using a 
combination of mutagenesis, spectroscopy and structural biology. 
Experience in protein biochemistry and spectroscopy an advantage.


A research position (up to 36 months) is also available in the groups of 
Peter Nixon and Bart Feys  to study the molecular basis of 
photoinhibition and photosystem two repair through the analysis of 
nuclear and chloroplast mutants of Arabidopsis and tobacco. Experience 
in plant molecular biology an advantage.
