  POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW
  Biochemistry and Genetics of Eukaryotic RNA Expression
  National Institutes of Health, USA

  Two positions will be available to study the basic mechanisms of RNA
production.
  Investigations will involve a highly conserved pathway of tRNA
biogenesis that also
  serves as a paradigm of eukaryotic gene expression.  The functional
pathway
  includes transcription, RNA processing, intranuclear trafficking of
RNA-protein
  complexes, and signal transduction.  A multidisciplinary approach,
involving
  genetics, molecular biology and biochemistry, and a novel reporter
system in fission
  yeast, will be used.  Alu and tRNA-like retroposons are also
investigated.
  Background in molecular biology and biochemistry is essential.
