Postdoc position open in Drosophila development - Taiwan
A postdoc position is available to study the molecular mechanism controlling eye development in Drosophila. The project will be to (1) identify new regulatory genes involved in the specification of eye development, and/or (2) to study the genetic/molecular/biochemical relationship of several nuclear regulators for eye development. The project is supported by a five-year Frontier Science Grant from the National Science Council.
Applicant should have a strong background in genetics and/or molecular biology. Experience in protein biochemistry will also be highly appreciated. Applicants
should send a C.V. or resume and statement of interests and experience to Dr. Y. Henry Sun, Institute of Molecular Biology, Academia Sinica, Nankang, Taipei, 11529 Taiwan (FAX: 886-2-2782-6085) or e-mail to mbyhsun at ccvax.sinica.edu.tw.
The Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB) of Academia Sinica is a government research institution. It is very well supported, equipped with modern research instruments, and provides an international research environment. More than 20 international postdocs are now working in IMB. English is used for institutional seminars and in our lab meeting. Taipei is a friendly city for foreigners.
