Post-doctoral position in yeast cell biology/cell cycle control

A post-doctoral position is available beginning August 1, 1995 to study 
the effect of DNA damage on cell cycle regulation in the fission yeast, 
S. pombe.  Projects are directed toward elucidation of the signal 
transduction pathway which couples the detection of DNA damage to control 
of cell cycle progression.  These studies revolve around characterization 
of the chk1 encoded protein kinase which is required for cell cycle 
arrest when DNA damage takes place (see Walworth et al., 1993, Nature 

Experience with yeast molecular genetics or biochemistry essential.  
Interested candidates should send a CV and the names of three references to:

RWJohnson Medical School is on the campus of Rutgers University and is 
part of a thriving and growing scientific research community.  Adjacent 
to the medical school is the Center for Advanced Biotechnology and 
Medicine which houses both medical school and Rutgers faculty.  In 
addition, both The Waksman Institute and The Cancer Institute of New 
Jersey are on campus.  There are over a dozen active yeast labs which 
gather regularly for joint meetings.  Piscataway is located across the 
Raritan River from New Brunswick, a recently revived small northeastern 
city.  New York City is a short 45 minute train ride to the north, the 
Atlantic Ocean and beaches are 45 minutes to the east and the rolling 
hills of the Garden State lie immediately to the west.
