Postdoctoral/Senior technician opening:

An IMMEDIATE research position is available in the Department of Cell
Biology, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX, to join a team studying
subcellular localization of steroid receptors and their cofactors, with a
keen interest in nuclear/mitotic architecture.  Moreover, particular
interest will be centered upon covalent post-translational processing of
wild-type and disease-associated receptors/cofactors in pathways leading to
their turnover.  In both cases, extensive effort will be focused upon live
cell imaging using bioluminescence in multiple channels.  High resolution
studies at the ultrastructural level will focus on immunogold labeling and
resinless-section microscopy.  The successful candidate will have either/or
extensive experience in cellular imagining, both by light and electron
microscopic methodologies, strong skills in molecular cloning techniques
and excellent communication skills (written and oral).  This position can
be appointed at the post-doctoral level, or as senior technician (BS/MS and
>7 years relevant experience).  The annual salary range will be 25-30K,
commensurate with experience.

These studies will make extensive use of the Department's Integrated
Microscopy Core and the Computational and Visualization Biology Laboratory,
containing state of the art hardware and software, including a new
deconvolution-based wide-field optical workstation. High-speed data
throughput is provided by a SGI Origin 2000 (equipped with 24 R10000
processors and >1GB RAM), thus allowing nearly 'live' deconvolution imaging
of four channels.  Electron microscopy is supported by two TEMs, three
ultramicrotomes and ancillary equipment.  The Department offers a dynamic
and intensive research environment with excellent opportunity for advancement.

Baylor College of Medicine is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative
Action/Equal Access Employer.
