Postdoctoral position to study telomere structure and function.
A postdoctoral position is available to investigate telomere
dynamics in Saccharomyces cerevisiae in the laboratory of Art Lustig at
Tulane University Medical Center. We have had a long-standing fascination
in telomere structure and function and are currently focusing on two broad
1) The mechanisms of nucleation and inheritance of telomeric
silencing (e.g. MCB 16: 2843);
2) the mechanism of telomere size maintainence (e.g. Genes Dev. 10:
Candidates should have a background in molecular biology and/or
