Aminoacid neurotransmission in the CNS of Drosophila
A postdoctoral position is available for 1 year with a possibilty for an
extension for a second year. The position is open from March 1, 2005 and is
financed as a scholarship. The research project is financed by a private
foundation as well as by money from the Swedish Research Council.
The project concerns the role played by aminoacid neurotransmitters and
their receptors in the function of the biological clock and other central
systems of the Drosophila brain. Especially the role of G-protein-coupled
receptors (GPCRs) for these transmitters are under study. We utilize both
transgenic flies for in vivo studies and cultured identified neurons in
vitro for our studies.
A PhD in a relevant area of biology is required. The applicant should have
a background in molecular biology of Drosophila and preferably have skills
in genetics, immuncytochemistry and cell culture techniques.
Further information on the research project and other matters can be
provided from Dick R. Nässel
