POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS IN VIRAL RNA REPLICATION, GENE EXPRESSION AND
VIRUS-HOST INTERACTIONS

Creative, highly motivated researchers are sought for postdoctoral
positions studying the functions and interactions of viral and host factors
in RNA replication, gene expression, and related events in positive-strand
RNA viruses.  

Unique opportunities to identify and study relevant host factors are
available through our demonstration that bromovirus and nodavirus RNA
replicons can replicate and express foreign genes in yeast, allowing the
use of powerful yeast genetics to identify pertinent host genes and to
greatly facilitate other experiments (Janda and Ahlquist  [1993] Cell
72:961-970; Quadt et al. [1995] PNAS 92:4892-4896; Price et al. (1996) PNAS
93:9465-9470).  Bromoviruses and nodaviruses are well-studied viruses with
excellent genetic and biochemical resources for in vivo and in vitro
studies of fundamental replication mechanisms.  

Significant opportunities are available in several areas of molecular
genetics, biochemistry, and cell biology.  Successful candidates will join
a well-equipped group of interactive researchers with diverse backgrounds
and expertise.  Send curriculum vitae, brief statement of resaerch
interests, and names/addresses (including Tel/FAX/e-mail) of three
