POSTDOCTORAL POSITION--MITOCHONDRIAL DNA--SEATTLE

A postdoctoral fellowship is available for two years beginning 
immediately to study the structure and replication of chromosomal DNA 
molecules within plant mitochondria. What is the nature of the 
'blockage' at the ends of linear mtDNA molecules: is it due to a 
bound topoisomerase or some other protein involved replication, 
recombination or repair, or to an unusual DNA conformation?

The analytical techniques include DNA Moving Pictures, which produce 
spectacular images of intact chromosomal DNA molecules as long as 100 
megabases.
