Position Announcement:  Postdoctoral position in symbiotic nitrogen
fixation/microbial development.  Department of Environmental Horticulture,
University of California, Davis. Position is for one year, with
possibility of further research. 

Responsibilities:  This project focuses on development of the vesicle, 
the specialized site of nitrogen fixation in the root nodule endosymbiont, 
Frankia (Actinomycetales), in relation to environmental signals.
Candidate will test and develop further an enzyme assay as a marker of
vesicle differentiation in Frankia, in cell-free extracts of Frankia
grown under varying inductive conditions. The enzyme in question is 
involved in elaboration of the oxygen-protective lipid vesicle envelope. 
Further work at the molecular genetic level would be possible.

Qualifications:  Must have completed a PhD in microbial or plant
