POST-DOC POSITION AVAILABLE

A two-year post-doc position will be available in the Dept. of Biochemistry
& Mol. Biology at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam (The Netherlands),
starting in the second half of 1997. The project involves analysis of the
role of a DEAD-box RNA helicase in the first steps of ribosomal RNA
processing in yeast, including characterisation of its enzymatic activity
and identification of interacting factors, using both biochemical and
molecular-genetic approaches.

The Department is part of the Graduate Research School 'BioCentrum
Amsterdam' and has a long-standing, internationally recognised research
program focused on the mechanism and control of ribosome biogenesis in
yeast. The project in question forms part of our studies on pre-rRNA
processing and assembly carried out by a group consisting of six people,
including three graduate students, with extensive national as well as
international collaborations. The Department has access to state-of-the-art
equipment for molecular-biological and molecular-genetic research,
including facilities for automated DNA sequencing, confocal microscopy and
protein microsequencing.

Candidates should have thorough experience in modern molecular-biological
techniques and preferably experience in protein biochemistry.  Experience
with yeast is a recommendation but is not required.

Amsterdam is an attractive city with a liberal, tolerant climate. In the
few hours spent outside the laboratory, ample possibilities are available
for recreation and night life.
