Post Doctoral Research Opportunities
Two Postdoctoral Research Scientists are required for a project in plant
disease resistance signaling. The first
is a two-year position (Ref. No. 25 09 14) and is available immediately.
The successful applicant will conduct a
detailed biochemical analysis of the interaction between the receptor
protein Pto and its pathogen-derived
ligand, AvrPto. These experiments will follow our previous work on
signaling in the AvrPto-Pto pathway (see
EMBO J 1999 18:3232-40). The second position (Ref. No. 25 09 15), will
be available from April 1, 2001, for a
one year period. The successful applicant will analyze protein complexes
containing components of the Pto
Applicants require a PhD for both positions and should be highly
motivated with demonstrated competence in
protein chemistry. Experience in plant biology is not a prerequisite.
Informal enquiries about the positions are
encouraged (jprathjen at ucdavis.edu). Please quote the appropriate
reference number in all correspondence.
Salary on appointment will be within the RA1A scale L16,775 to L25,213
per annum. The appointment level for
both positions will depend on qualifications and experience.
To apply, please send a full CV including names and contact information
for two referees to the Personnel
Officer, John Innes Centre, Colney, Norwich, NR4 7UH, UK quoting the
appropriate reference number. The
closing date for applications is 23 November 2000.
