Cytoskeleton and Cell Polarity
Two openings are immediately available. The first position will employ a
combination of genetic and molecular methods to examine the role of
spectrin in polarized cells (see J. Cell Biol. 149:647-656, 2000 and J.
Neuroscience. 21:4215-4224, 2001). The second position will combine
genetic methods and electron microscopy to study the role of alpha
actinin in striated muscle (see J. Muscle Res. and Cell Motil.
21:705-713). Both positions will make use of the fruit fly Drosophila as
a model organism. Preference will be given to candidates with experience
in one or more of the following: Drosophila genetics, molecular biology
techniques, and immunocytochemisty. Salary is negotiable. Send
curriculum vitae and contact information for three references to:
