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
