Post-doctoral research position available, in the laboratory of Dr.
Abram Gabriel at Rutgers University in Piscataway, New Jersey.   We
study a variety of questions related to retrotransposon reverse
transcriptases.  These include:

1)Defining the connection between retrotransposon reverse
transcriptases  (yeast Ty1, humasn L1, and Crithidia CRE1) and
double-strand break repair in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae (see 
Teng, S. C., Kim, B., and Gabriel, A. Retrotransposon reverse
transcriptase-mediated repair of chromosomal breaks, Nature, 383,
641-644, 1996)
2)Studying the molecular determinants of reverse transcriptase fidelity
in yeast (see Gabriel, A., Willems, M.,  Mules, E.H., and Boeke, J.D.
Replication infidelity during a single cycle of Ty1 retrotransposition,
Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, USA, 93, 7767 7771,

3)Examining the replication mechanisms of trypanosome site-specific
non-LTR retrotransposons (see Teng, S.C., Wang,  X., and Gabriel, A. A
new non-LTR retrotransposon provides evidence for multiple distinct
site-specific elements in Crithidia fasciculata miniexon arrays, Nucleic
Acids Research, 23, 2929-2936, 1995;
