Postdoctoral Research Fellowship
in Molecular Biology
The project is funded by the TMR (Training and Mobility of Researchers)
and therefore addresses to young scientists who are members of countries
of the European Union. It involves the molecular analysis of
Bradyrhizobium japonicum signal peptidases and their roles in the
establishment and maintenance of symbiotic interactions with soybeans
and other host plants. The main goal of the project will be to analyze
the function of several newly identified genes of B. japonicum and to
study the influence of bacterial mutations on the host plant.
Applicants should have good knowledges in molecular genetics, gene
expression techniques, protein biochemistry and immunology.
Salary (tax free grant) will be up to DM 36,000.- per annum, and the
post is available immedeately for a period of two years.
Informal enquiries may be made to Dr Peter Müller
