Two postdoctoral positions are available immediately in Christine and
Bernard Thisse's lab at the Institut de G=E9n=E9tique et de Biologie
Mol=E9culaire et Cellulaire (IGBMC) in Strasbourg, France.
Successful candidates will work on the establishment of the
"molecular anatomy" of the zebrafish embryo using genes identified in
a large scale in situ hybridization screen actually performed in our
The main goal of this project is to release data from the in situ
screen to public by building a gene expression database which will be
included in the zebrafish database ZFIN (Eugene, USA). Analysis of
6,800 cDNAs has already provide us with more than 1,700 expression
Postdocs will work in collaboration with 3 technicians and 2 PIs and
will be in charge of the analysis and documentation of gene
expression data. This work will be the first step toward a functional
analysis of novel gene activities involved in the control of early
embryonic development (For example of such studies see : Development.
124, 4253-4264., Development. 126, 229-240, Nature 403, 425-427).
The research group is located at the IGBMC
(http://www-igbmc.u-strasbg.fr/) in Strasbourg, Illkirch, in a large
Institute covering the fields of developmental biology,
transcriptional regulation, human genetics, immmunology, structural
biology. This Institute possesses all new and highly performant core
facilities for high thoughput molecular, embryological techniques as
well as a large zebrafish facility.
Candidates should have interest in developmental biology and/or
vertebrate anatomy. Applicants should send a curriculum vitae and a
summary of present research interests by Email to :
