Postdoc position, John Innes Centre, UK

Nobody nobody at hgmp.mrc.ac.uk
Wed Jul 23 03:39:09 EST 2003



Applications are invited for a postdoctoral BBSRC-funded post to 
investigate the role of DNA topoisomerase VI in cell-size control, 
cell cycle and endoreduplication in Arabidopsis.  The work will 
involve a combination of biochemistry, molecular biology and genetic 
approaches to understand how the protein complex contributes to plant 
development.  The project will involve protein purification and 
characterisation, identification of other proteins involved in 
endoreduplication and positional cloning of other endoreduplication 
mutants.  The successful applicant will work in collaboration with 
Prof Tony Maxwell (Biological Chemistry Dept.) and Prof Keith Roberts 
(Dept. of Cell and Developmental Biology), building on the success of 
previous work in this area (Sugimoto-Shirasu, K., et al. (2002) Curr 
Biol 12: 1782-1786.).

This is a funded position, which expected to be for a period of 
two-year's and is available immediately.  Candidates should have a 
Ph.D. or equivalent in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology or a related 
discipline.  Salary on appointment will be within the range =A320,600 
to =A324,500 per annum (pay award pending), depending on qualifications 
and experience.  JIC offers a choice of a final salary and 
stakeholder pensions.

Application forms can be obtained by writing to the Personnel 
Officer, John Innes Centre, Norwich Research Park, Colney, Norwich,
