A post-doctoral position will become open in my lab
early this summer. Several exciting project possibilities are available,
all using yeast as a model system to study genes/ proteins associated with
disease. We have two projects currently funded and with openings, one
relating to studies
of proteins/ pathways relevant to galactose metabolism and galactosemia,
the other relevant
to studies of KH-domain RNA-binding proteins in yeast (related to the
Fragile X syndrome-
associated protein FMRP). Some relevant references are listed below.
