Applications are invited for a three-year MRC funded post doctoral
position to study the spatial and temporal control of neuroblast
divisions in the developing adult CNS of Drosophila. Like other work
in the lab [Development 129: 2957-2963, 2002], this project will
focus on understanding the central role played by the Hox/homeotic
genes. It also involves conducting a mutagenesis screen for
additional genes regulating neuroblast proliferation. The laboratory
is within a larger grouping of developmental biologists integrating
work on all major model systems and particular emphasis will be
placed on comparing Drosophila mechanisms with those of vertebrate

Applicants should have a background in cell and molecular biology and
previous experience in Drosophila genetics is desirable.
