Two NIH funded postdoctoral positions are available immediately in the 
lab of David Featherstone at the University of Illinois at Chicago.  We 
are using Drosophila to identify and study genes required for 
postsynaptic development and function.  Our lab is relatively new 
(started fall 2002), but extremely well equipped.  In addition to 
typical fly genetics, we do a lot of confocal miscroscopy (we have our 
own confocal in the lab), patch-clamp electrophysiology on embryonic 
NMJs (almost everything we do is in embryos), and real-time PCR (we 
have our own real-time PCR machine).  Candidates must have demonstrated 
experience in either Drosophila genetics/molecular biology or 
patch-clamp electrophysiology.  For more information see, see:

Applicants should send (preferably via email) a copy of their C.V. with 
names and address of three references, to: def at uic.edu (or: Dave 
Featherstone, Dept. of Biological Sciences, University of Illinois at 
Chicago, 840 West Taylor Street, Chicago, IL 60607).
