Two positions are available at The Sanger Centre
A Postdoctoral position is available immediately at the Sanger Centre
to investigate cell-cycle regulation and signal transduction mediated
by serpentine membrane receptors using the model organism C. elegans.
This project will focus on studying C. elegans homologues of
vertebrate genes with roles in development and disease. Preference
will be given to applicants with a strong background in molecular
biology and a familiarity with C. elegans biology. Previous research
experience in growth control, signal transduction or yeast 2-hybrid
analysis is advantageous.
A Research Assistant position is available to participate in a
research programme using DNA microarrays and other functional genomic
techniques to study genes controlling developmental pathways in the
model organism C. elegans. Specific techniques to be employed include
PCR amplification, purification and hybridization of nucleic acids
and microscopy. Duties will also include general laboratory
management and record keeping. Applicants should possess a degree in
Biology or a related subject. Preference will be given to candidates
with a background in molecular biology.
Closing date: 1 December 2000
