Postdoctoral position to study
Polycomb-group-dependent transcriptional 

An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available
mmediately to study the
molecular/biochemical mechanisms by which Drosophila
 Polycomb-group (PcG)
 proteins maintain the transcriptional silence of
 target genes.  To date, at
 least three multimeric PcG protein complexes have
 been identified.  However,
 little is known about the biochemical activities of
 these complexes and the
 mechanisms by which they alter chromatin structure
 and maintain
 transcriptional silence of target genes.  Current
 and future projects in our
 lab include purification and characterization of
 protein complexes that
 contain the PcG protein Enhancer of zeste [E(z)],
 and to initiate functional
 analysis of the components of these complexes.  More
 information and a list
 of recent publications from our lab is available at
 the following web page:
 Individuals with expertise in protein biochemistry,
 chromatin protein
 analysis, and/or molecular biology are encouraged to
 send an application,
 including a C.V. and the names and addresses of
 three referees, to:
