A position is available from January 1st 2002 for a postdoctoral 
scientist to study developmental genetics in C. elegans in the 
laboratory of Dr. Alison Woollard.  Using a broad range of state-of 
-the-art molecular genetic techniques, including post-genomic 
approaches, we are seeking to understand how cell fate is determined 
during development using C. elegans as a model system.  We are 
particularly interested in the roles of the T-box family of 
transcription factors in development (see Genes Dev. 14: 596-603, 
2000).  Motivated scientists with a strong background in molecular 
biology and/or genetics are encouraged to apply.  Applicants should 
possess a PhD or equivalent, have a sound publication record, good 
communication skills and the ability to work as part of a team.

The project is funded by the Medical Research Council for up to five years.

The salary will be in the range of =A317,451 - =A326,229 per annum, 
depending on qualifications and experience, the upper limit being 
determined by the funding body.  Further general information can be 
obtained from the Department website http://www.bioch.ox.ac.uk/jobs .
