A number of Post-Doctoral positions are available for studying the role
of mating-type associated genes in virulence of Cryptococcus neoformans,
an important human fungal pathogen. Projects include the isolation and
characterization of genes involved in mating, hyphal development, and/or
virulence. Molecular experience is required and a strong background in
yeast or fungal genetics/molecular biology is preferred. The positions
are located in the Dept. of Microbiology at the University of Texas
Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA) and are funded for up to
three years.

The Health Science Center has one of the largest groups of
internationally recognized mycologists working on human fungal pathogens
and offers an excellent opportunity to enter the field of medical
mycology. The city of San Antonio is one of the ten largest in the
country yet is one of the most affordable to live in. Salary is highly
competitive. Applications may be sent by mail, fax, or e-mail and must
include the following: a detailed C.V., selected reprint(s), and contact
information for three references. Send to:
