A postdoctoral position is available immediately to investigate gene
expression in bacterial cells that have been immobilized in acrylic/vinyl
acetate films.  These viable but nongrowing cells can be used as
biological catalysts for specific reactions for long periods of time.  To
optimize the catalytic potential of biofilms, we needed to better
understand the regulation of gene transcription, mRNA stability
determinants, protease and RNase deficient mutants, and efficient
translation initiation that will be required to produce large amounts of a
specific catalytically active enzymes in these immobilized cells.

The successful candidate will work with an interdisciplinary group of
scientists from Biochemistry, Chemical Engineering, and the Biological
Process Technology Institute.  Training in microbiology and molecular
biology is required.
