Postdoctoral position to study telomere structure and function.

	Due to good fortune, a postdoctoral position is available to
investigate telomere dynamics in Saccharomyces cerevisiae in the laboratory
of Art Lustig at Tulane University Medical Center. We have had a
long-standing fascination in telomere structure and function and are
currently focusing on two broad areas:

	1) The mechanisms of nucleation and inheritance of telomeric
silencing (e.g. MCB 16: 2843);
	and
	2) the mechanism of telomere size maintainence (e.g. Genes Dev. 10:
1310).

	Candidates should have a background in molecular biology and/or
genetics.  Background in yeast is preferable but not required.

	Interested candidates should send their c.v. either by e-mail, fax,
or mail to the address listed below.
