Please post and circulate the following announcement to interested parties.


	 POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP / RESEARCH ASSOCIATE POSITIONS

	       **** COMPUTATIONAL MOLECULAR BIOLOGY ****

   The BioMolecular Engineering Research Center at Boston University
   in consortium with the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at MIT.

Two POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP / RESEARCH ASSOCIATE positions are available
in computational molecular biology.  The research will center on
problems of sequence-based analysis related to protein structure and
function.  Problems under current investigation include:  comparative
sequence and structural analyses; functional pattern recognition and
discovery; protein folding domain modeling; protein structure
prediction; machine learning and AI approaches; database mining; and
harnessing massively parallel computation.

One position is available for a molecular biologist to apply advanced
computational methods to problems of biological relevance, and to
provide assistance in developing new methods.  This position will
involve the discovery and exploration of new structure/function
relationships at both the sequence and the 3-d structure levels.  A
second position is available for a computer scientist to design and
implement new computational methods, and to provide assistance in
applying them to biological problems.  This position will involve
machine learning and biological structure modeling on a massively
parallel computer.  Both positions will require active collaboration
with experimental molecular biologists and computer software developers.

The positions are available immediately.  Candidates must have a strong
background and a PhD in molecular biology, computer science, or a
related field.  Salary $32,000 to $42,000 commensurate with experience.
