A Ph.D position is available in our laboratory (DEPARTMENT OF MEDICAL 
BIOCHEMISTRY, UNIVERSITY OF GENEVA).The current ongoing research 
projects are:
1.Protein folding: 
				Genetic and biochemical studies related to in vivo disulfide bond 
formation in the periplasm of E.coli.
    Identification and charactreization of different catalysts and 
chaperones in protein folding.

2. Heat shock regulation mediated by sigmaE(24) in E.coli.
   This subject deals with studies related to regulation of this sigma 
factor by itself and by different stesses. We are also characterizing 
different genes transcribed by this sigma factor and addressing 
questions like if they are involved in protein folding per se or are 
involved in signal transduction of misfolding of proteins.

3. Signalling pathways of inducing heat shock response.
		 We have identified certain new phospho-protein phosphatases which are 
involved in this signal transduction.

For more information regarding our work consult some of the recent 
publications like: EMBO J (1995) 14:3415-3424; EMBO J (1995)
