POSTDOCTORAL/RESEARCH ASSOCIATE POSITION
MOLECULAR MOTORS IN CHLAMYDOMONAS
NIH-supported postdoctoral positions are available immediately (starting
date negotiable) to study molecular motors in Chlamydomonas. State-of-the-art
approaches and techniques to be used include nuclear genome transformation,
insertional mutagenesis, gene tagging, cDNA cloning, in vitro mutagenesis, in
vitro motility assays, protein biochemistry, and electron microscopy. This is
part of an ongoing project; many important mutants, probes, and protocols
already have been developed and are ready to be used.
Both beginning and senior postdoctorals are invited to apply. Previous
experience in molecular genetics and/or protein biochemistry would be

The Witman lab will be moving to newly renovated space at the University of
Massachusetts Medical Center main campus in Worcester this spring. The UMMC
ranks in the top 10% of public medical schools in the U.S. with regard to NIH
funding, and was ranked Number 1 in the U.S. in rate of growth of NIH funding
in 1996. The UMMC has excellent facilities and provides an outstanding
research environment for postdoctoral study.
