A postdoctoral position is available immediately to study TGF-beta/BMP
signal transduction in Drosophila. Applicants with a background in
protein biochemistry, tissue culture and/or molecular biology are
strongly encouraged to apply.
Our group is interested in modulation of ligand activity, signal
transduction during embryogenesis and transcriptional control of
downstream genes in the TGF-beta pathway. For background information
see Genes & Dev.(1994) 8, 2588; Cell (1995) 80, 899-908; Cell (1995) 81,

The Dept. of Developmental and Cell Biology has a strong and interactive
group of researchers (including other fly labs) working on cell
signaling and development. UC Irvine provides an excellent scientific
environment, and the campus is located 5 miles from the coast, with easy
access to Los Angeles.
