A postdoctoral position is available at the NIEHS to investigate 
chromatin structure at Drosophila telomeres. Studies may 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 and 
possible interactions between chromatin structure and DNA repair. 
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
