One Postdoctoral Research Associate and two Research Assistant 
(Master degree) positions are available.  We are working to identify 
unique cellular processes that are regulated by two large 
multi-protein complexes, 26S proteasome and Cop9 complexes and to 
characterize the involved molecules/structures and mechanisms. 
Approaches employed include (1) proteomics analyses for yeast mutants 
with defect on various components; (2) protein-protein interaction to 
identify linked factors; (3) reverse genetic analyses of Arabidopsis. 
Applicants should submit a CV, a letter stating their research 
interests/experience and the names and addresses of three references 
to: Hongyong Fu, Institute of Botany, Academia Sinica, 128 sec 2 
Academy Rd., Nankang, Taipei, Taiwan 11529.  Tel: 02-27823050 ext 
422. Fax: 02-2782-7954.  Email:
