One postdoctoral position for two to three years is open at the Insect
Molecular Genetics Group of the Institute of Molecular Biology and
Biotechnology (IMBB) in Heraklion, Crete. The position is funded by the
MacArthur Foundation Network on the Biology of Parasite Vectors and is open
to European and non-European candidates.
The fellow will participate in an ongoing program to develop tools for
germline transformation of insects of health and economic importance.
The project aims at understanding the mechanism and regulation of jumping
of the transposon Minos in the germline of Drosophila melanogaster, and at
engineering appropriate plasmid vectors for germline transformation of the
Medfly and mosquitoes.
Applicants should send (by email, fax, or express mail) their CV and the
