   THIS NOTICE IS BEING POSTED TO THE BIOSCI, BIONEWS, GNOME-PR 
   AND EMPLOYMENT BB'S.  PLEASE EXCUSE ANY DUPLICATIONS YOU RECEIVE.
        
        Dear Colleagues,
        
           The Applied Molecular Biology Group of Du Pont, within  
        Pharmaceutical Research and Development of Medical Products has 
        immediate openings for two Principal Investigators.  Our focus 
        is to provide new approaches, tools and targets through 
        molecular biology that, when combined with our strong 
        conventional drug discovery programs, will lead to new 
        therapeutics.  The new positions offer exciting opportunities 
        for Ph.D. scientists with strong molecular biology backgrounds 
        to work as part of interdisciplinary research groups with 
        pharmacologists and medicinal chemists in a highly team-oriented 
        environment with an equal-opportunity employer. Successful 
	candidates should have at least 2 years of post-doctoral 
	experience and expertise in one of the following areas:
        
           MAMMALIAN EXPRESSION SYSTEMS: Demonstrated experience in the 
        expression of recombinant genes in mammalian tissue culture 
        systems is essential.  Design and utilization of a variety of 
        vector systems and host cells is preferred.  A background in the 
        development of engineered mammalian cell lines for 
        pharmaceutical screening is desirable.
        
           RECEPTOR CLONING: Experience in cDNA cloning and a strong 
        background in recombinant DNA technology is required.  
        Preference will be given to candidates with experience in the 
        molecular biollogy of receptors or membrane proteins.  A 
        background in expression cloning, subtractive hybridization, 
        cell sorting or neuroscience would be advantageous.
        
           Interested molecular biologists may reply to this message or 
        may respond to:  AMB Search Committee, c/o Barbara Sahagan, 
        DuPont Experimental Station E400/5219, P.O. Box 80400, 
        Wilmington, DE. 19880.
