Two postdoctoral positions are availble to take part in a
multidisciplinary project to study mechanisms involved in gene
regulation.

Position 1. Biochemist with experience in purification of recombinant
proteins expressed in E. coli and with an interest in protein structure
and folding. You will investigate the structure of transcriptional
activation and repression domains and how their structure is influenced
by interaction with target proteins (see Biochemistry 35, 9584-93,
1996).

Position 2. Molecular biologist with experience in yeast genetics. You
will use genetic screens in yeast to identify proteins that are
important for the function of mammalian transcriptional activation
domains expressed in yeast (see Mol. Cell. Biol. 17, 934-45, 1997).

The positions will be based at the Centre for Biotechnology, Dept. of
Biosciences, Karolinska Institute and will involve close collaboration
with the groups of Torleif H=E4rd at the adjacent Centre for Structural
Biochemistry (+46-8-6089230,  torleif.hard at cnt.ki.se) (pos.1) and Hans
Ronne, University of Uppsala (+46-18-174239, hans.ronne at bmc.uu.se) (pos.
1 & 2). The positions are available for up to 2 years in the first
instance. =


Applications, including CV, relevant publications and two letters of
recommendation should be sent by 1st May, 1997 to Associate Professor
Anthony Wright, Karolinska Institute, Department of Biosciences at
Novum, S-141 57 Huddinge, Sweden. Telephone: +46-8-6089159, Fax:
+46-8-7745538, email: tony.wright at cbt.ki.se.
