POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE POSITION
Molecular Analysis of Photosynthetic Complexes
An NSF-supported postdoctoral position is available immediately to
study basic protein structure-function relationships of the photosystem II
reaction center complex using the experimental model Synechocystis 6803.
The work combines state-of-the-art molecular genetic, biochemical, and
biophysical approaches to clarify the activity and light-dependent
assembly of the catalytic tetramer of manganese atoms that forms the core
of the H2O-splitting enzyme.
A Ph.D. and a strong background in protein biochemistry and/or
molecular biology is required. Preferences will be given to individuals
with proven records of quality publications and to those with potentials
to obtain independent funding.
