POSTDOCTORAL POSITION AVAILABLE (Molecular Virology):
 
In anticipation of funding for a mult-year research project a Postdoctoral 
Research Associate is wanted to investigate the role of mouse hepatitis 
virus (MHV) host protein binding elements in viral replication.  We have 
recently identified two protein binding elements at the 3' end of the mouse 
hepatitis virus RNA genome (Yu and Leibowitz, J. Virol. 69:2016-2023,1995 and 
Virology 214:128-138, 1995).  The goals of the project are to define the RNA 
sequence requirements for binding host proteins to the 3' end of the MHV 
genome, to determine the effects of alterations in protein-binding on 
replication of RNA templates, and to identify and characterize the host 
proteins which bind to the 3' end of the MHV genome.  

Requires Ph.D., and strong research experience in molecular biology, biochemistry,
or virology.   The expected start date for the position is June 1996. This research will be carried 
out at Texas A&M University, one of the outstanding (tenth largest) research 
universities in the U.S.  If you are interested please send your CV and the 
names and addresses of three references to:
