The Salk Institute for Biological Studies
The Salk Institute is seeking candidates to undertake independent research in the area of growth control in yeast or animal cells in the Molecular Biology and Virology Laboratory (MBVL) of the Armand Hammer Center for Cancer Biology. Current areas of research in MBVL include: Mechanisms of growth control and neoplastic cell transformation
(W. Eckhart); molecular analysis of steroid receptors and neuroendocrine function (R. Evans); fission yeast cell cycle and DNA replication (S.L. Forsburg); growth control, oncogenesis and cell cycle progression (T. Hunter); molecular basis of vertebrate limb development (J.C. Izpisua Belmonte); HIV-1 transcriptional control
(K. Jones); molecular genetics of chromosome structure and
inheritance in Drosophila (G. Karpen); regulation of development and differentiation in Drosophila (M. McKeown); protein tyrosine kinases and signal transduction (B. Sefton); oncogenes and gene transfer
(I. Verma); immortalization of human fibroblasts (M. Vogt) and cell cycle control, genetic stability, and cell death (G. Wahl). The Salk Institute offers a highly interactive environment with a number of research groups working in areas of molecular biology and neuroscience. Interested individuals are invited to send an application to: MBVL Search Committee, The Salk Institute, 10010 N. Torrey Pines Rd, La Jolla CA 92037 USA. Please submit a curriculum vitae, description of present and future scientific endeavors, and three letters of recommendation. Applications will be reviewed beginning December 15, 1994. The Salk Institute is an affirmative action employer.
