Postdoctoral Research Associate Position
Rutgers University
New Brunswick, NJ

A postdoctoral research associate position is available at the Biotech
Center at Rutgers University to study the effects of pokeweed antiviral
protein (PAP) on mRNA stability in Arabidopsis and in yeast.  PAP is a
ribosome inactivating protein with broad-spectrum activity against viral
and fungal pathogens.  PAP recognizes the cap structure on cellular and
viral RNAs and inhibits translation by depurinating the capped RNA.  A
postdoctoral research associate is sought to characterize the mechanism by
which PAP interacts with the cap structure and destabilizes mRNA.
Qualifications include a Ph.D. in a related field, experience with RNA
biochemistry, molecular biology and demonstration of an active publication
record.  Please send the names and addresses of three references to Dr.
