Postdoctoral Position--Gene Silencing in Drosophila

A postdoctoral position is available to study the relationship of 
RNAi related mechanisms to various types of transcriptionally based 
gene silencing in Drosophila. Background of the project can be found 
in the following articles: (Pal-Bhadra, Bhadra and Birchler, 1997, 
Cosuppression in Drosophila: gene silencing of Alcohol dehydrogenase 
by white-Adh transgenes is Polycomb dependent. Cell 90: 479-490; Pal 
Bhadra, Bhadra and Birchler, 1999, Cosuppression of non-homologous 
transgenes in Drosophila involves mutually related endogenous 
sequences. Cell 99: 35-46; Pal Bhadra, Bhadra and Birchler, 2002, 
RNAi related mechanisms affect both transcriptional and 
post-transcriptional transgene silencing in Drosophila. Molecular 
Cell 9: 315-327). Further details available upon request. Experience 
with genetics/molecular biology and good communication skills are 
desirable. Interested individuals should send curriculum vitae and 
the names and addresses (including email) of three references to: 
James Birchler, Division of Biological Sciences, Tucker Hall, 
University of Missouri, Columbia, MO 65211-7400; Email: 
BirchlerJ at Missouri.edu. The University of Missouri is an Affirmative 
Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.
