DNA instability and human disease

A post-doctoral position is available immediately to study the molecular
basis of human neurological disorders such as Fragile X mental
retardation syndrome and Friedreich's Ataxia that result from DNA repeat
instability. Specific areas of interest include mechanisms of
instability, the basis of the chromosome fragility associated with
certain of these diseases, the effects that expanded repeats have on
gene expression, and the normal function of the genes affected in these
disorders. Demonstrated competence in core molecular biology techniques
is essential. Experience with mammalian tissue culture techniques, the
analysis of DNA/chromatin structure, protein expression/purification,
and/or comparative gene expression would be desirable. Candidates should
have received their degree within the last 5 years. Applicants should
submit their Curriculum vitae and three letters of reference as soon as
possible to:
