Postdoctoral Research Associate
Department of Biology
University of Leicester, UK

Salary Grade 7 - GBP 29,138 to GBP 33,780 per annum

Available immediately for 36 months

Ref: R3818

A BBSRC-funded postdoctoral position is available immediately for a strongly motivated individual to study the mechanism of chloroplast protein import in the model plant, Arabidopsis thaliana. Receptor components of the import machinery have multiple isoforms, and previous work indicated that these different isoforms define distinct, client-specific import pathways. This project aims to define these different pathways in greater detail. Experience of molecular biology research will be essential, and experience of research on Arabidopsis and/or organelle biology will be highly desirable.

Informal enquiries are welcome and should be made to Dr Paul Jarvis (e-mail: rpj3 from le.ac.uk or telephone: +44 116 223 1296).

Downloadable application forms and further particulars are available from www.le.ac.uk/personnel/jobs.  If you require a hard copy, please contact Personnel Services - tel: +44 116 252 2435, fax: +44 116 252 5140, email: recruitment4 from le.ac.uk.

Closing Date: 29 July 2008
