Research will focus on the biology of carbonic anhydrases on photosynthesis, using multidisciplinary approaches, including proteomics, biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology, genomics and advanced live-cell imaging. We are interested in identifying and characterizing carbonic anhydrases and ancillary proteins necessary for photosynthesis of land plants. The successful candidate will work in a highly interdisciplinary environment in the MSU DOE-Plant Research Lab and will carry out research with mutants of the model species Arabidopsis thaliana that we have isolated in our lab.
