Postdoctoral positions to study the regulation of protein synthesis and

One project involves studies on the structure and mechanism of the RNA
binding protein, FMRP.  This protein appears to regulate the half-life
or translational activity of a subset or mRNAs and is missing or
defective in Fragile X Mental Retardation [JBC 273, 15521 (1998) ]. The
second project concentrates on ubiquitin-dependent processes,
particularly protein degradation. Special emphasis is placed on the
deubiquitinat-ing enzymes involved in processing polyubiquitin gene
products and in down-regulating ubiquitin-dependent processes  [EMBOJ.
16, 4826 (1997) ].

Experimental approaches include synthesis and chacterization of
substrates and inhibitors, identification and purification of proteins
involved, structural biology, genetics, and developmental biology.

Applicants should have a recent Ph.D. degree in the biological sciences,
a broad back-ground in cellular, structural, and/or molecular biology, a
strong publication record dem-onstrating accomplishment, and should be
available before March 1, 1999.

Responses should include a CV including career goals, a brief
description of past research accomplishments, and the names of three
references.  Reply by mail, email or Fax to:
