    Post Doc at Imperial College London to study Chlorophyll f in Photosystem II (see Nürnberg et al., Science 360, 12101213 (2018)

    Applications are invited for a Research Associate to join Professor A.W. Rutherford’s laboratory in the Department of Life Sciences at Imperial College London, UK. The aim of the project is to investigate chlorophyll f –containing Photosystem II. The successful candidate will be involved in all aspects of the project, including isolation of species, cyanobacterial culture, protein purification, and biophysical and biochemical characterization.


    Deadline for application: 27th July 2018

    Two postdoctoral positions are available immediately to develop and test novel strategies for engineering photosynthetic microbes (cyanobacteria, algae, diatoms) for production of fuel and chemical compounds. 13C metabolic flux analysis, targeted metabolomics profiling, algal cell culture, biochemical assays, and molecular biology studies will be key approaches used in the research. Motivation and experience will be important factors in the recruitment process. For more information about the Young laboratory, see our website: Interested applicants should send a current CV including the names of three references to: Dr. Jamey Young at:

    Post-Doctoral Position: Structure-Function of Membrane Proteins; Cytochrome b6f Complex of Oxygenic Photosynthesis

    The group of W. A. Cramer at Purdue University is seeking an outstanding Post-Doctoral researcher to extend the understanding of the structure and function of the cytochrome b6f complex in oxygenic photosynthesis.  We have obtained a 2.5 A structure of the

    250 kDa hetero-oligomeric complex  (pdb 4OGQ) using continuous beam synchrotron radiation, conducted at the nearby (200 km) Argonne National Laboratory, which has provided major insight into structure-function. Because the b6f complex controls the

    rate-limiting step in the linear electron transport chain, future structure studies will focus on the mechanism of rate limitation, pathways of proton transfer involving lipophilic quinone(ol) and quinone-analogue inhibitors  in the linear and cyclic electron transfer chains, and the interaction of the complex with peripheral proteins including the trans-membrane chlorophyll protein kinase, and would continue the use X-ray diffraction analysis, and utilize Cryo-EM as well with the Titan microscope that is in-house.  Candidates should have demonstrated expertise in the biochemistry, expression, and purification of membrane proteins and macromolecular structure analysis. Interested individuals should contact W. A. Cramer at
