One postdoctoral fellowship is available to study the control of
cellular proliferation during Drosophila melanogaster development.
Approaches include molecular and genetic screens for signal molecules,
transcription factors and other regulatory factors, using reporter
gene fusion constructs in D.melanogaster and yeast hosts. The position
is funded by the Jeansson foundations and is for 12 months, with the
possibility of extension depending on future funding. Position should
preferentially be filled by July 1, 1997, or earlier. The candidate
should have a strong background in molecular biology and genetics.
Previous background in Drosophila and/or yeast work is preferred, but
is not a requirement. Send full CV and two letters of recommendation
to: Dr. Per Kylsten, Department of Developmental Biology, The
Wenner-Gren Institute, Stockholm University, S-106 91 Stockholm,
Sweden. Fax: +46-8-161567. Evaluation of applications will start
February 1, 1997. Send further enquiries via E-mail to:
