Ziv Reich’s lab at the Weizmann Institute of Science is looking for an outstanding and motivated postdoc to study microscopic and mesoscopic re-arrangements of photosynthetic complexes and membranes that govern the plant’s response and tolerance to high-light stress. Our long-term goal is to unravel how structural dynamics in photosynthetic membranes control photosynthetic energy conversion under varying environmental conditions. The project involves high-end electron microscopy techniques, such as freeze-fracture and cryo-electron tomography, together with spectroscopic and phenotypic characterization. The project is conducted in collaboration with the lab of Helmut Kirchhoff at Washington State University.
Experience in electron microscopy and image analysis is an advantage.
