Postdoctoral position available immediately to study the function of the
ESPL-Complex in Drosophila (Delidakis and Artavanis-Tsakonas, 1992, P.N.A.S.
89, 8731; Knust et al, 1992, Genetics 132, 505).  These genes encode a 
family of transcription factors implicated in the transduction of 
intercellular signals (via the Notch receptor) to the nucleus.

The research will be carried out in the lab of Christos Delidakis at the
Institute of Molecular Biology & Biotechnology in Heraklion, Crete, Greece.
The IMBB is a small yet active workplace and there are diverse research 
groups to provide a stimulating scientific atmosphere.  The position is 
funded for 2 years by a EC grant (applicable only for non-Greek EC/EFTA
nationals - but anyone is welcome to apply, if you can find salary support).
Background in genetics, molecular biology or cell biology is highly desirable.

We are currently in the process of dissecting interactions involving the 
ESPL-C factors (1) at the protein level using the yeast two-hybrid system
(Gyuris et al, 1993, Cell 75, 791) and (2) using fly genetics.  Additional
directions may be taken in the future, esp. the immunocytochemical detection
and biochemical analysis of the proteins in question.  We have active
collaborations with groups in Basel (Switzerland), Cambridge (UK), Yale 
(USA) and McGIll (Canada).  Short term visits to these labs can be arranged 
as need arises to expand our technical abilities and enrich the scope of our
