Postdoctoral position in the lignin biosynthesis laboratory, Department of Biosciences, University of Helsinki.
We are looking for a motivated and proficient post doc in a project where we characterize monolignol transport proteins at the plasma membrane using biochemical and bioinformatics approaches mainly with Norway spruce, while Arabidopsis and hybrid poplar are used when needed. As the means by which monolignols are transported from the protoplasts into the apoplastic space is not known yet, we are interested in all possible transport methods including ABC-type plasma membrane transporters and diffusion based on the hydrophobic- hydrophilic properties of the molecules to be transported. The work entails isolation of plasma membranes of Norway spruce and hybrid poplar and analysis of their transport proteins and characterization of the putative monolignol transporters. As diffusion of monolignols is also a possibility, this will be analyzed using the isolated plasma membrane vesicles. The work is in progress and many of the methods to be used have been optimized for the particular plant material in this project.
The task belongs to a collaborative research project, FuncWood 3, between Helsinki University and the Finnish Forest Research Institute, and is funded by the Finnish Forest Cluster EffTech-programme.
The postdoctoral position is available for the period 1st March 2011 till 30th June, 2013. Suitable candidates should have an interest in plant physiology and cell wall biosynthesis and preferably experience in the areas of plant molecular biology, plasma membranes and protein purification as well as bioinformatics.
To apply, e-mail your application, CV, and contact information of two referees to firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for applications is 15th January, 2011. Additional information of the research group: http://www.helsinki.fi/bioscience/oxyplant/
