POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS AVAILABLE TO STUDY TELOMERE SIZE REGULATION AND
TELOMERIC SILENCING IN SACCHAROMYCES CEREVISIAE.

        I am seeking additional qualified postdoctoral researchers to study
one of two ongoing projects:  a) the role of the telomere-binding protein
RAP1 in telomere size control and telomeric silencing (see Lustig et al.
MCB 16:  2483-2495, 1996); and b) the characterization of a novel process,
called telomeric rapid deletion (Li and Lustig, Genes Dev. 10:1310-1326,
1996), that appears to combine elements of intrachromatid recombination and
pairing of non-homologous telomeres to regulate telomere size.

        Applicants should have a background in molecular biology and/or
genetics.  Interested applicants background can respond by e-mail or at the
address listed below.
