Postdoc in protein structure/function

A postdoc position is currently available in my laboratory at the 
Department of Plant Physiology, Umea Plant Science Centre, Umea 
University, Sweden.  The position concerns studies on structure/ 
function properties of a higher plant UDP-glucose pyrophosphorylase 
(UGPase), a key enzyme of UDP-glucose formation.  The primary goal of 
this project is to identify regions in the amino acid sequence of UGPase 
that are responsible for subunit/ subunit interactions, protein 
oligomerization and binding regulatory proteins.  The position requires 
strong background in gene manipulation (e.g. site-directed mutagenesis, 
two hybrid system), and some experience with protein/enzyme work.  The 
position is financed by the biotechnology grant from Umea University 
initially for 12 months, with a possibility of extension for one more 
year.  The position carries a yearly tax-free salary of 168,000-180,000 
SEK, depending on experience.  A Ph.D. degree in an appropriate area is 
required.  Qualified candidates are encouraged to send a letter of 
interest (together with c.v. and e-mail addresses of two referees) either 
through e-mail (preferably), fax or snail-mail to: Dr. Leszek A. 
Kleczkowski, Department of Plant Physiology, Umea University, S-901-87 
Umea, SWEDEN; e-mail: Leszek.Kleczkowski at plantphys.umu.se; fax:
