chloroplasts to enhance photosynthetic CO fixation and crop yield. The work relates to construction and analysis of new transgenicNicotiana tabacum plants expressing carboxysomes and algal/cyanobacterial bicarbonate transporters in chloroplasts, and directed evolution of bicarbonate transporters in E. coli stems to select for better transporters. The successful applicant will support research objectives outlined and will be a member of the International RIPE consortium ( ripe.illinois.edu ) within the Division of Plant Sciences at the Research School of Biology. Research objectives revolve around strategies to transfer cyanobacterial carboxysomes and algal/cyanobacterial bicarbonate pumps to Cchloroplasts to enhance photosynthetic COfixation and crop yield. The work relates to construction and analysis of new transgenicNicotiana tabacum plants expressing carboxysomes and algal/cyanobacterial bicarbonate transporters in chloroplasts, and directed evolution of bicarbonate transporters in E. coli stems to select for better transporters.

The position is a Continuing Contingent Funded (CCF) appointment for two (2) years, and may be extendable pending funding availability.
