Postdoc position: Dynamics of photosynthetic membranes, Centre ALGATECH, Trebon, Czech Republic

The Dynamics of photosynthetic membranes Group (PI: Dr. Radek Kaňa) at Centre ALGATECH, Institute of Microbiology (Třeboň, Czech Republic) is looking for one POSTDOC & one PhD student to study “STRUCTURE AND DYNAMICS OF CYANOBACTERIAL THYLAKOID” by methods of advanced confocal microscopy.

The project will elucidate the importance of thylakoid membrane protein mobility and the role of membrane heterogeneity in light-harvesting efficiency. The experimental work will include a combination of single-cell life-imaging methods (confocal microscopy, FCS, FRAP) and
other fluorescence methods that will be applied to study key factors (proteins) affecting structure and function of thylakoid membrane microdomains.
