Please distribute the following announcement to anyone interested:

POSTDOCTORAL POSITION available, pending anticipated approval of
funding, starting no earlier than 15 Sept 1997 for up to 3 years for a
multidisciplinary investigation of functional significance and
evolutionary variation of  heat-shock proteins in Drosophila.  This
project is expected to involve both field and laboratory studies to
measure Hsp70-mediated protection of larval feeding against ecologically
relevant heat shock, relative fitness of larvae varying in Hsp70
expression, and  molecular evolution/variation in the "hsp70 genome"
within Drosophila melanogaster and among species in the melanogaster

Recent progress on this project is described at: 
and will be presented at this year's meeting of the American Society of
Naturalists/Society of Systematic Biologists/Society for the Study of
Evolution at the University of Colorado in the ASN Vice Presidential
Symposium on "Testing Adaptive Hypotheses Through Genetic and
Physiological Manipulation"  at 4 PM on Sunday, 15 June.

For additional information or to indicate interest in the position,
