Post-doc position; Plant pathogen interactions

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral research fellow post 
investigating the molecular basis of plant disease resistance 
signalling pathways. The project will involve the biochemical 
characterization of two interacting proteins that function as 
positive regulators of the plant disease resistance protein RPM1. The 
aim is to understand the contribution and role of these proteins in 
enhancing disease resistance and suppressing cell death during an 
incompatible plant pathogen interaction.   This will be achieved 
using available epitope tagged and mutant Arabidopsis lines to probe 
the RPM1 plant disease resistance protein complex. The Fellow will 
employ a multidisciplinary experimental approach encompassing 
biochemistry, mass spectroscopy and functional genomic methodologies. 
The ideal candidate should have skills in biochemistry with expertise 
in protein isolation. Proteomics facilities including a 
state-of-the-art Q-TRAP tandem mass spectrometer are available at the 
Wye campus. Experience with Arabidopsis and plant pathology would be 
preferable but is not essential.
This BBSRC funded position is based at the picturesque Wye Campus of 
Imperial College, London, and is available for approximately 3 years. 
Informal enquiries may be made to Murray Grant 
(M.Grant at imperial.ac.uk; +44(0)2075942883).
