Chromosome Structure and Dynamics

The Molecular and Cellular Biology Section of the T.H. 
Morgan School of Biological Sciences invites applications 
for a TENURE-TRACK ASSISTANT PROFESSOR position for the 
Fall of 1998.  We seek an individual of exceptional promise 
who uses molecular genetic approaches to study chromosome 
structure and dynamics.  Appropriate research areas 
include, but are not limited to:  investigations of 
telomere or centromere function, contribution of chromatin 
domains to gene expression, DNA sequence contributions to 
chromosome stability and evolution.  Priority will be given 
to candidates that use a well developed genetic system such 
as Saccharomyces cerevisiae,  Drosophila melanogaster, or 
Caenorhabditis elegans.   A Ph.D. or M.D. degree and 
suitable postdoctoral experience are required.  The 
successful candidate is expected to establish a nationally 
competitive research program and participate in relevant 
undergraduate and graduate level instruction.  The new 
research program will complement existing strengths in gene 
regulation, viral replication and transcription, pre-mRNA 
splicing, signal transduction, developmental genetics, and 
cell growth regulation.  Excellent facilities and start-up 
support are available.
	The T.H. Morgan School of Biological Sciences is 
comprised of 32 faculty members within the sections of 
Molecular and Cellular Biology, Organismal and Integrative 
Biology, and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.  The School 
is part of a broader community of more than 400 Life 
Sciences faculty within the University Main campus and in 
the adjacent Medical School and Agricultural campuses.
