Postdoctoral Research Associate SAUR Proteins and Guard Cell Membrane Transport

Salary: Grade 6 £27,328 – £30,738 / Grade 7 £33,574 – £37,768 per annum

A 3-year post is available with Prof. Mike Blatt at Glasgow University to start October 2016 or soon thereafter. The project is part of a binational UK/USA collaboration with groups at the Universities of North Carolina and Minnesota to resolve the mechanisms of SAUR protein action in auxin signalling as it contributes to guard cell transport control. Much of the work at Glasgow will focus on single-cell studies, ion transport analysis and modelling. Prior experience in one or more areas of cell biology, electrophysiology and wholeplant phyiology will be an advantage.

Informal enquiries to Prof. Blatt [phone (+44 (0)141) 330-4771 or (+44 (0)789) 907-4182; email Michael.Blatt@glasgow.ac.uk] are strongly encouraged prior to application.
