     Available immediately, funded for at least two years.  We use C.
elegans vulval development as a model system to investigate cellular
response to signals that orient asymmetric cell structure.  A predicted
receptor tyrosine kinase appears to be important for correct cell
orientation.  We are characterizing this protein; we will screen for
interacting proteins and characterize interesting candidates.
     The laboratory is in the Biochemistry Department of the University of
Kentucky College of Medicine, in Lexington Kentucky.  The department
provides modern, well-equipped research facilities in a stimulating
intellectual environment.  Lexington, located in the beautiful Bluegrass
region, is a mid-size city that provides a variety of cultural offerings.
