POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP AVAILABLE
University-funded Killam Postdoctoral Fellowships are available at
Dalhousie University, in Canada. Successful applicants may join any
laboratory in the Department of Biology (http://is.dal.ca/~biology2/)
which they feel that their research may complement. There are two
Drosophila laboratories at Dalhousie with overlapping research
interests in the post-genomic cell biology of the photoreceptor and
its synaptic terminal, using genetic, molecular and anatomical
methods at all levels, as well as neurobiological approaches and
developmental genetics (chromatin structure, genomic imprinting).
University infrastructure includes: molecular biology facilities, all
forms of microscopy, especially EM and confocal, 3-D reconstruction
and other computer imaging methods, tissue culture and HPLC.
Dalhousie University is situated in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Contrary to
popular view, Nova Scotia is not on the Arctic Circle, but enjoys a
moderate coastal climate offering an essentially limitless unspoiled
coastline. Halifax is a lively and pleasant port, and the major
cultural and economic metropolitan centre for this traditional region
of the Canadian seaboard. Sufficiently large to provide major
amenities, it is still small enough to be an easy, safe and
accessible place in which to live.
