Ref: R3654

A BBSRC-funded postdoctoral position is available immediately for a strongly motivated individual to study novel nuclear mutations that affect the efficiency of chloroplast protein import in the model plant, Arabidopsis thaliana. The mutations were identified in forward-genetic screens for extragenic suppressors of the well-characterised chloroplast protein import mutants, ppi1 and tic40. Applicants should have a PhD and a strong background in a relevant discipline. Experience of molecular biology research will be essential, and experience of research on Arabidopsis and/or organelle biology will be highly desirable.
