HUMAN DISEASES WITH DEFECTIVE DNA REPAIR - POST-DOCTORAL
FELLOWSHIP - BETHESDA, MD
We are studying molecular, cellular and clinical abnormalities in patients
with defective DNA repair and possible links of these genes to disease in
the general population. Current emphasis is on xeroderma pigmentosum,
Cockayne syndrome and trichothiodystrophy.  A postdoctoral position is
available for a talented individual (M.D., Ph.D. or MD-PhD) with less than
5 years of postdoctoral experience who has knowledge of molecular biology
and DNA repair.

To apply, send CV and bibliography and names (with contact information) of
3 references to:

POST-DOCTORAL POSITION- UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, DAVIS

A post-doctoral position is available to study the pairing of  homologous
chromosomes in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Projects in the
laboratory are aimed at understanding the mechanism,  regulation and roles
of homologous chromosome pairing in meiotic and nonmeiotic cells using
molecular genetic and cytological approaches.

POST-DOCTORAL SCIENTIST - LAWRENCE LIVERMORE NATIONAL LABORATORY

Post-doctoral positions available in an interactive laboratory/program
investigating the biochemical, molecular and cellular processes of
mammalian DNA repair.  Specific studies include defining the repair
mechanisms for ionizing radiation-induced DNA damage [with a particular
focus on proteins in the base excision or double-strand break

inhibitors for radiosensitization, and identifying genetic factors in
human cancer susceptibility.  Experience in protein biochemistry or signal
transduction pathways a plus.  Positions are for two years, with a
possibility for a third year extension, and begin in late 2000 or early
2001.  Salaries start in the mid 30s.  Livermore is 45 miles east of San
Francisco.

POST-DOC POSITIONS IN TRANSCRIPTION/DNA REPAIR GENOTYPE/PHENOTYPE
RELATIONSHIP IN XERODERMA PIGMENTOSUM PATIENTS - FRANCE

Two postdocs position are available to conduct research on:

1) Transcription coupled repair. Studies will use reconstituted
transcription and NER systems and chromatine template. Components will be
isolated from HeLa and XP patients cell lines

2) Regulation of cdk7, a kinase associated with a basal transcription
factor. Four hybrid systems has already identified a battery of proteins
associated with postranscriptional processses as well as with apoptose.

The studies involve techniques in molecular biology, protein expression
and purification, cell culture and enzymatic assays.
