	A postdoctoral position is available in the Boston University School
of Medicine to study molecular mechanisms of programmed cell death (apoptosis)
in lympyhocytes. Particular emphasis will be placed on the role of Fas-Fas
ligand interactions and on a recently described, nuclear receptor (the Ah
receptor) in inducing apoptosis. Approaches to be taken include gene cloning,
sequencing, and transfection, site-directed mutageneis, and production of gene
knock-out and transgenic mice. Candidates with previous postdoctoral
experience in these and other areas of molecular biology are encouraged to
apply. The successful candidate will join a highly active and productive
laboratory of 7 investigators with expertise in molecular and cellular
biology. Collaborations with several laboratories at Boston University and
Harvard Medical School have been established and may be exploited by the
successful candidate. Significant opportunity for additional, independent
funding exists and should be viewed as a chance to significantly advance the
candidate's independent career. Technical support for the successful candidate
is possible. Candidates with an enthusiasm for scientific discovery in a
highly supportive team environment and candidates who seek an opportunity to
advance their independence are encouraged to apply. Enthusiasm for baked beans
is optional. Mail C.V. to: David H. Sherr, Ph.D., Professor of Pathology,
Professor of Environmental Health, Boston University School of Medicine, 80
East Concord st. (S-105), Boston, MA 02115 or E-mail to dsherr at Boston
University is an equal opportunity employer.
