POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS AVAILABLE TO STUDY TELOMERE SIZE REGULATION AND
TELOMERIC SILENCING IN SACCHAROMYCES CEREVISIAE.
I am in the process of moving my lab to Tulane University Medical
Center in New Orleans and am seeking qualified postdoctoral researchers to
study one of two problems: a) the role of the telomere-binding protein
RAP1 in telomere size control and telomeric silencing (see Lustig et al.
MCB 16: 2483-2495, 1996); and b) the characterization of a novel process,
called telomeric rapid deletion (Li and Lustig, Genes Dev. 10:1310-1326,
1996), that appears to combine elements of intrachromatid recombination and
pairing of non-homologous telomeres to regulate telomere size.
