This project aims to exploit genome sequence data to provide a broad
molecular understanding of mitochondrial, plastidic and nuclear protein
composition during development and changes invoked by adaptation to
environmental stress in plants. It will use a combination of cellular
fractionation, enzymology, protein biochemistry, proteomic analysis and
molecular biology techniques. A PhD in biochemistry, molecular biology, or
related discipline is essential. This position is available immediately. For
