Post-doctoral position in yeast cell biology/cell cycle control
A post-doctoral position is available immediately to study the effect of
DNA damage on cell cycle regulation in the fission yeast, S. pombe.
Projects are directed toward elucidation of the signal transduction
pathway which couples the detection of DNA damage to control of cell
cycle progression. These studies revolve around characterization of the
chk1 encoded protein kinase which is required for cell cycle arrest when
DNA damage takes place (see Walworth et al., 1993, Nature 363:368-371).
Experience with yeast molecular genetics or biochemistry essential.
Interested candidates should send a CV and the names of three references to:
