	Up to 2 years funding available to work with 
	
	Dr Robin Allshire on:
	
	“"Silencing at the fission yeast centromeres as a means to 
	isolate components of the kinetochore complex"”
	
	The Successful applicant will further characterise mutants 
defective in centromere silencing and chromosome segregation. 
	Experience in molecular biology or yeast genetics and especially 
immunoprecipitation/protein purification would be an advantage.
