Post-doctoral Position, to study the role of

Phosphorylation in the Regulation of the mRNA Exon Junction Complex

at the

University of Paris XI
Orsay, France

	A one-year funded post-doctoral position is available immediately
to study the role of phosphorylation by the LAMMER protein kinase DOA of
Drosophila, in the phosphorylation of SR and other proteins in
nucleocytoplasmic export and localization of mRNA during development and
sex-determination. Possibilities for extending the funding period can be
explored. The position must be filled by December 2002.
	A Ph.D. and experience in molecular biology, cellular biology,
biochemistry or genetics are required. Candidates should send a curriculum
vitae, including a list of publications, and the names and e-mail addresses
of three references to the address/e-mail below. Open to non-French
citizens only.
	The Université de Paris XI is situated in the Chevreuse valley in
the outlying suburbs of Paris, approximately 25 km. southwest of the city.
The campus is accessible by frequent trains to Paris, which run at least
every 15 minutes.
