Postdoctoral Position 1

This position makes use of filamentous phage systems and is closely
related to Postdoctoral Position 2. A close collaboration between the
two
postdoctoral fellows is expected.

We are seeking individuals with a strong background in molecular
genetics and /or protein chemistry (quantitative ligand receptor
interaction) to
achieve the following:

DC (lineage) specific genes will be identified by monoclonal antibodies
(mAb) or other ligands and the cDNA product recognized by the ligand
cloned using a recently developed filamentous phage system (see Gene,
137, 69, 1993). cDNA libraries from murine and human DC (DC lines
or, freshly isolated) are available and are presently being completed.

This position is in the context of an EU grant on dendritic cells (DC);
see
also Nature (15th August 1996, vol. 382, classified page 23) or
http://www.medicine.ox.ac.uk/eunidi/.

Both positions are for one year and can be extended to up to three
years. The salaries are set by the Swiss National Science Foundation.

Postdoctoral Position 2

This position makes use of filamentous phage systems and is closely
related to Postdoctoral Position 1. A close collaboration between the
two
postdoctoral fellows is expected.

We are seeking individuals with a strong background in molecular
genetics
and /or protein chemistry (quantitative ligand receptor interaction) to
achieve:

Ig repertoire cloning and development of novel peptide libraries.
The aim is to obtain improved ligands for any desired molecule or the
creation of mimotopes. This postdoctoral position would require
construction of libraries and biophysical characterization of the
libraries by binding phage to selected antigens or ligands.

Both positions are for one year and can be extended to up to three
years. The salaries are set by the Swiss National Science Foundation.
