Postdoctoral position to study Ty retrotransposition in yeast

A postdoctoral position is available immediately to investigate the 
mechanism and consequences of Ty element transposition in S. 
cerevisiae.  These mobile genetic elements are structurally and 
functionally related to retroviruses and are widely dispersed in 
nature.  We are interested in host genes that modulate Ty 
transposition, the mechanism of Ty virus-like particle formation, 
reverse transcription, integration, and copy-number control in naive 
strains lacking Ty elements.  We are also interested in creating 
functional Ty/HIV hybrids and expression of foreign retroelements in 
yeast.  Candidates should be experienced in biochemistry or molecular 
and cell biology.  Previous training in yeast genetics is helpful but 
not essential.

The position is part of the Division of Basic Sciences of the 
National Cancer Institute and is located at the Frederick Cancer 
Research and Development Center in Frederick, MD.  The National 
Institutes of Health is an equal opportunity employer and encourages 
all qualified women and minorities to apply.  Selection for the 
position will be based solely on merit, with no discrimination for 
non-merit reasons such as race, marital status, physical or mental 
disability, sexual orientation or membership or nonmembership in an 
employee organization.  Salary range for this position is 
$31,500-38,020.

Interested candidates should submit a CV and names of three references to:
