Postdoctoral research in chromatin structure

Two postdoctoral positions are available at the NIEHS to investigate chromatin
structure at Drosophila telomeres. Studies will examine nucleosome modification
and positioning in the presence of mutations that specifically relieve telomeric
silencing, as well as the functions and interactions of proteins encoded by
genes identified by these mutations. Other possible projects include an
investigation into the regulation of transposition of a telomere-specific
retrotransposon. Candidates should have a broad knowledge of molecular biology
with an emphasis on protein biochemistry and/or chromatin structure. Knowledge
of Drosophila genetics will also be advantageous. Applicants must have a Ph.D.
or MD or equivalent and less than five years of postdoctoral experience.
