Postdoc position/Taiwan/fly development

A postdoc position is available to study the molecular mechanism =
controlling eye development in Drosophila. The project is supported by a =
five-year Frontier Science Grant from the National Science Council. Web =
page for Dr. Y. Henry Sun is at http://www.imb.sinica.edu.tw/%7Embyhsun/ =


Applicant should have a strong background in genetics and/or molecular =
biology. Experience in protein biochemistry will also be highly =
appreciated. Applicants=20
should send a C.V. or resume and statement of interests and experience =
to Dr. Y. Henry Sun, Institute of Molecular Biology, Academia Sinica, =
Nankang, Taipei, 11529 Taiwan (FAX: 886-2-2782-6085) or e-mail to =
mbyhsun at ccvax.sinica.edu.tw.=20


The Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB) of Academia Sinica is a =
government research institution. It is very well supported, equipped =
with modern research instruments, and provides an international research =
environment. More than 20 international postdocs are now working in IMB. =
English is used for institutional seminars and in our lab meeting. =
Taipei is a friendly city for foreigners.
