			Postdoctoral Research Opportunities in the

			Molecular Evolution of Genes and Proteins

			The Institute for Genomic Research (TIGR)
			Department of Genome Informatics, 
			Laboratory of Molecular Systematics

	TIGR is accepting applications for postdoctoral research
	associates in the Department of Genome Informatics to
	assist in compiling and curating multiple sequence alignments for gene
	and protein families. The alignments will be an integral part
	of predicting the structure/function of newly discovered genes through comparative
	sequence analysis. Sequence alignments will be made available to the scientific
	community in the form of a publically accessible database now under
	development at TIGR.

	Responsibilities include searching existing databases for
	members of different  gene families, creating and maintaining multiple
	sequence alignments, gathering information about gene families
	from relevant scientific literature, and working with
	programmers to develop sequence analysis tools for
	manipulating and analyzing nucleotide and amino acid
	sequence data.

	The ideal candidate will be a computer literate biologist or
	biochemist with some experience in molecular biology/genetics,
	comparative sequence analysis, and familiarity with different multiple
	sequence alignment algorithms.
	TIGR is a new, not-for-profit research center devoted to
	accelerating the sequencing, mapping and functional characterization
	of human, animal, and plant genomes. The Institute is located in the
	Washington DC/Baltimore metropolitan area and offers a competitive
	compensation and benefits package.

	Qualified appliants are encouraged to send a curriculum vitae
	and letter of interest to:

			The Institute for Genomic Research
			932 Clopper Road
			Gaithersburg, MD 20878
			Attn: Human Resources/cjb

	Electronic CV submissions may be sent to:

			Dr. Carol Bult, Director
			Molecular Systematics Laboratory
			bult at tigr.org
