Applications are invited for a position at the post-doctoral level in the
Yeast Group of the Geneva Biomedical Research Institute (formerly the
Glaxo Institute for Molecular Biology).
The underlying goal of the group is to apply yeast-based approaches to
understanding fundamental mechanisms in biology relevant to human
disease. Within the context of this programme an opening has arisen to
study aspects of mitochondrial function in relation to ion and free
radical homeostasis, and the importance of these elements in the normal
and abnormal functioning of cells. Mitochondrial dysfunction underlies a
variety of pathological states in man, and given the extensive
conservation of mitochondrial functions throughout eukaryotic evolution
much of the underlying biology should be amenable to study in yeast.
The sucessful candidate should have a proven expertise in this area and
will be expected to play a key role within a multidisciplinary team
focussed on the importance of oxidative metabolism in disease.
This position has been advertised in Nature (24 October) and Science
Formal applications should be addressed to:

and addresses of three referees.
