POSTDOCTORAL POSITION  at The University of Glasgow, Scotland.

Research field:  Genetic control of morphogenesis and ectodermal
function in the free living
nematode Caenorhabditis elegans.

We have performed mutant screens and generated a variety of mutants that
are defective in
aspects of generation of body shape (morphogenesis) and subsequent
maintenaince of body shape
(exoskeleton formation).  Several mutants have been genetically mapped
to facilitate cloning. The
project will involve cloning of genes identified by mutation (the
completion of the C.elegans
genome project greatly simplifies this process), and the subsequent
characterisation/investigation of the cloned genes.  The project will
offer considerable training in
the use of this organisim as a developmental model.
Some information is available at:

The position is funded under an EEC TMR Network and is available
immediately for up to three
years (depending
on starting salary).

Specific  conditions of eligibility apply to TMR funded posts:
(i) Applicant must be EEC citizen or citizen from Israel or
(ii) but must not be citizen of the hiring country (i.e. not British),
(iii) must have spent less than 18 months in the past 24 months in the
hiring country.
