Postdoctoral Research Associate position in Plant Molecular and Cell Biology



The University of Stavanger invites applications for a two-year Postdoctoral
Research Associate position in Plant Molecular and Cell Biology at The Centre
for Organelle Research, Faculty of Science and Technology, beginning April 1,
2008.



Project: Targeting Studies and Functional Analyses of Novel Plant Peroxisomal
Proteins

The targeting signals of some plant peroxisomal matrix proteins have been
characterized, but these are currently insufficient to deduce mathematical
models to predict novel matrix proteins from genome sequences with high
accuracy. Site-directed mutage*nesis in combination with in vivo subcellular
targeting studies of EYFP fusion proteins will be applied to define more
precise targeting patterns. In addition, our knowledge on the physiological
functions of most novel enzymes identified only recently by proteomics is
restricted to their annotation. Heterologous gene overexpression, yeast
complementation studies, and phenotypic characteri*za*tion of Arabidopsis
T-DNA insertion lines will be instrumental in unraveling novel metabolic
networks and regulatory mechanisms of plant peroxisomes.



The Reumann laboratory belongs to the Centre for Organelle Research (CORE),
which houses state-of-the-art equipment including a grid confocal inverted
microscope. The new laboratory represents a highly active and stimulating
environment and encourages cross-disciplinary and collaborative research.

The project is technically and intellectually demanding and requires
therefore postdoctoral researchers with experience in diverse aspects of
plant physiology, molecular and cell biology, and preferably bioinformatics
tools (e.g., PERL, MySQL).

The applications will be assessed in relation to research experience and
track record. In addition, potential candidates will be invited to an
interview.



It is assumed that the appointee will work full time on the project and that
s/he will participate in the scholarly circles at the faculty and the
university.



The position is salaried according to the State Salary Code, l.pl 17.510,
code 1352, ltr 54 - 58, of NOK 394.900 - 424.000 per annum. In special cases
higher salaries may apply.



The position provides for automatic membership in the Norwegian Public
Service Pension Fund, which guarantees favorable retirement benefits. Members
may also apply for home investment loans at favorable interest rates.



Further information about the position can be obtained from Professor Sigrun
Reumann, e-mail [Only registered users see links. ] <mailto:[Only registered users see links. ]>



The application must contain the following documents and material in three
copies:



· Cover letter including previous research experience

· CV

· the form Utvidet søkerskjema (Information to be made available to
the applicants)

· certificates/diplomas

· references

· list of publications

· up to 15 publications and other documentation that the applicant
considers relevant



and be addressed to:

University of Stavanger

Faculty of Science and Technology

v/Elisabeth Stornes Fiskå

N-4036 Stavanger



It is preferable that the application documents are sent by e-mail to
[Only registered users see links. ] <mailto:[Only registered users see links. ]>



The application should be marked st.id 8200015.



Closing date for applications is January 6, 2008.
