POSTDOCTORAL POSITION

INSTITUTE OF CELL AND MOLECULAR BIOLOGY
UNIVERSITY OF EDINBURGH,  UK

A position is available for a postdoctoral molecular biologist to 
study protein splicing factors in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae 
in the laboratory of Jean Beggs. Experience in yeast genetics and 
molecular biology would be deal for this post. Expertise in the 
analysis of  nucleic acid-protein interactions would also be 
appropriate. 

This laboratory specialises in the analysis of nuclear pre-mRNA 
splicing, using a combination of genetic and biochemical 
approaches to characterise protein splicing factors and RNA-protein 
interactions (e.g. Cooper et al., 1995, EMBO J. 14:2066-2075; 
Teigelkamp et al., 1995, EMBO J.14:2602-2612). Accommodation is in
