Postdoc and Technician Wanted

We study development and signal transduction in C. elegans using 
a variety of genetic and molecular biological techniques. For more 
information, see:  

Patterson, G. I., and R. Padgett. 2000. TGF-beta-related pathways
control development of C. elegans.  Trends in Genetics 16:27-33

and a description of my research on the web at: 


Postdoc position: This position involves the study of transcriptional 
regulation in a C. elegans regulatory pathway ("dauer" formation). 
Possible approaches include: forward and reverse genetic 
approaches to identify important regulators; use of microarray 
analysis to identify regulated genes; characterization of 
transcriptional regulatory elements in regulated genes.  Prior 
experience in C. elegans is not necessary, as we are one of eight 
excellent C. elegans laboratories on campus. There are ongoing 
projects in the lab, as well as several projects that can be 
developed independently. Funding for the position is available.  

Technician position:  The exact nature of the position will depend 
on the skills of the person hired, but I want to find someone to 
perform some of the following:  C. elegans strain construction and 
phenotype analysis, PCR, cloning, RNA preparation and gene 
expression analysis, microinjection of worms for transformation, 
and gene mapping.  The position requires a bachelors degree and 
laboratory experience. Ability to work independently to implement 
and troubleshoot techniques and experiments are pluses.  Ability 
to maintain computers and web pages is a plus.  

This position pays a competitive wage commensurate with 
experience and is grant supported.
