A post-doctoral position is available to work in Strasbourg (France) 
on the genetics of innate immunity  in Drosophila. We use large-scale 
screens to find mutants that affect the humoral immune response of 
Drosophila which is regulated mainly by two NF-kappa B pathways. This 
system is extremely helpful to understand the basic mechanisms of 
immunity, both in flies and humans. We have started to investigate 
the mechanisms by which the fly detects infections.

Our laboratory, headed by Prof. J. Hoffmann, is a large group 
consisting of several autonomous teams working on different aspects 
of the insect immune response, thus providing a unique setting of 
synergies between cell biology, biochemistrys, molecular biology and 
Interested people can discuss with me at the fly meeting (second talk 
of the Immunity and Apoptosis session, in replacement of Julien
