Dear Colleagues:

I have a postdoctoral position available to study the regulation of CO2
fixation gene expression in Rhodobacter. I would greatly appreciate it if
you would inform potential qualified students at your institution and in
your Department or laboratory of this position. I will certainly
reciprocate and inform students here about similar positions in your

Thank you for your cooperation.

Sincerely yours,

Bob Tabita


A postdoctoral position is available to study the molecular regulation of
the CO2 fixation (cbb) operons in Rhodobacter sphaeroides and Rhodobacter

Potential projects include:

(1) Determining the mechanism by which specific and global regulator
proteins activate transcription of genes important for CO2 fixation

   		Dubbs, J.M., and Tabita, F.R.  Two functionally 
distinct regions
upstream of the cbbI operon of Rhodobacter sphaeroides regulate gene
expression.  J. Bacteriol.  180 (1998) 4093-4911.

   		Paoli, G.C., Vichivanives, P., and Tabita, F.R. 
Physiological control
and cbb gene  regulation in Rhodobacter capsulatus.  J. Bacteriol. 180
(1998) 4258-4269.

   		Qian, Y., and Tabita, F.R.  A global signal transduction system
regulates aerobic and anaerobic CO2 fixation in Rhodobacter sphaeroides. J.
Bacteriol. 178 (1996) 12-18.

(2) Probing the integrative control of the cbb and nif (N2 fixation)
systems in Rhodobacter

     Joshi, H.M., and Tabita, F.R.  A global two component signal
transduction system that
     integrates the control of photosynthesis, carbon dioxide assimilation,
and nitrogen fixation.
     Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A.  93 (1996) 14515-14520.

    Qian, Y., and Tabita, F.R.  Expression of glnB and a glnB-like gene in a
    bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RubisCO) deletion mutant of Rhodobacter
    sphaeroides J. Bacteriol. 180  (1998) 4644-4649.

Qualifications include a Ph.D. or imminent Ph.D. in molecular biology,
microbiology, or biochemistry. Salary and benefits are highly
competitive.  The laboratory is well equipped for all aspects of modern
molecular and biochemical research and there is the opportunity to gain
experience in the use of modern microarray technology to study global gene
expression. A CV and the names and addresses of three references (including
telephone number and E-mail address) should be sent to: Dr. F. Robert
Tabita, Department of Microbiology, The Ohio State University, 484 West
12th Avenue, Columbus, Ohio 43210-1292. E-mail: tabita.1 at osu.edu

The Ohio State University is an equal opportunity, affirmative action
employer. Women, minorities, Vietnam-era veterans, disabled veterans, and
individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
