John Cheeseman and Evan DeLucia (Integrated Photosynthesis Research
Group/Department of Plant Biology) seek a highly creative, motivated,
and interactive postdoctoral associate to join our laboratories in
addressing questions about the relative importance of different
mechanisms of photo-protection in native plants. These mechanisms
include leaf orientation and optical properties, the function of the
xanthophyll cycle, and the contribution of antioxidants.
Background in photosynthesis research and biochemistry is desirable.
Funding for two years is available to US citizens only. Please
contact either John Cheeseman (j-cheese at uiuc.edu; 217 333 2385) or
Evan DeLucia (delucia at uiuc.edu; 217 333 6177); Department of Plant
