Postdoctoral Position to work on cytoskeletal proteins involved in
establishing/stabilizing cell polarity and in processes of cell sheet
morphognesis. The lab is taking a multidisciplinary approach to these
problems in the fly including molecular, genetic and cell biological
experimentation. Background information can be found in Development 120;
2039. Experience in disc staining is desirable.
The University Park campus of Penn State has a thriving fly
community (now 7 labs) which span a range from the analysis of
transcription factor interactions through a variety of developmental
problems to molecular evolution. In addtion the Center for Gene Regulation
provides an additional forum for interaction with a wider range of labs in
the transcription/ development fields.
Further information about our scientific environment can be sought
on the World Wide Web at the following addresses:

for the Biochem/Molbio dept - http://millreef.mcb.psu.edu/deptpage/
The fly labs here are also listed as a group on the WWW virtual library:
Drosophila page at: http://www-leland.stanford.edu/~ger/drosophila.html
though the Thomas lab is best accessed via the Biochem/Molbio dept.
The campus is delightfully situated in the hills of central
Pennsylvania in the town of State College, and yet is large enough to
attract a wide variety of cultural events from nationally known companies.
We are 3-4 hours drive from New York city, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and
