A postdoctoral position is available to study structure/function
relationships in the telomeres of 
Drosophila. Major interests of our group include the formation of
specialized chromatin 
structures and their effect on gene expression, and genes that control
the transposition of 
retrotransposons that target chromosome ends. Several genes have been
identified that appear to 
be important for the formation of chromatin structures in telomere
regions. The products of 
these genes and their interaction need to be characterized.

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences is a part of
the National Institutes of 
Health located in North Carolina. With three major universities close
by, there are ample 
opportunities for seminars and interactions with other labs.

Applicants should have a PhD or equivalent degree in genetics,
molecular or cell biology or a 
related field. Experience with Drosophila would be very helpful. While
candidates with less 
than five years of postdoctoral experience or eligible, recent
graduates are encouraged to apply.
