Postdoc: Phytochrome structure/function

Diese Stellenanzeige ist abgelaufen. Finden Sie hier zahlreiche ähnliche Jobs.

A DFG-funden postdoc position at the Institute for Plant Physiology of the Justus Liebig University will be available in the near future.
The aim of the project is to derive an understanding of the functional mechanism underlying photoconversion and signal activation in the phytochrome family of photoreceptors. The work relies on long-standing co-operations with X-ray crystallography and MAS NMR groups which have already led to numerous prominent publications. The role of the Giessen lab is to exploit established and novel molecular-genetic methods to generate appropriate material for the structure studies and to study signalling processes themselves, focusing on Cph1 from Synechocystis 6803 as well as plant phytochromes. There will also be opportunities for visiting and working directly with the crystallography and NMR groups. For further details see
Candidates should posses an appropriate PhD (or equivalent), be interested in phytochrome molecular biology, physicochemical analysis of protein structure/function and/or molecular genetics as well as in the notion of entering new scientific fields, developing new methods and making discoveries. They should be proficient in written and spoken English and able to work constructively in a multinational, interdisciplinary team. Applications from women and disabled persons are especially welcome.
If you are interested, please contact me by e-mail including a tabular CV as well as a one-page description of how you might contribute to the project. Please note that a formal application will be necessary when the position is announced officially.
