POSTDOC ANNOUNCEMENT. A post-doctoral position is available to study the
adaptation of Caenorhabditis elegans to chemical stresses. The aim of the
project is to identify key genes involved in the response of organisms to
chemicals and the physiological function of these genes. First, after
treatments of C elegans with different chemicals, the expression profile of
the genes will be determined with the help of DNA chips. We will especially
focus our attention on 'unexpected genes' in the response of organisms to
chemicals and on cytochromes P450. Second, we will determine the function
of the genes selected in the adaptation to chemicals and in the nematode
physiology. It is expected from this work to enlight response pathways to
chemical classes.
The lab is equipped to rear and transform C elegans and familiar with most
of the molecular biology technics. The successful candidate will work in a
group composed of 2 scientists and a technician. He/she should have a PhD
or equivalent and be experienced with C elegans and molecular biology. The
candidates should send (mail or email) a CV and names/addresses/phone
number/email addresses for 2 references to :

The lab is located in Antibes (French Riviera) and is composed of 7
scientist and 5 technicians. We are interested in the adaptation of the
invertebrates to chemical stresses, in insecticide resistance and the
consequences of these phenomenoms on the populations. All of the molecular
biology and biochemistry techniques or the facilities necessary for the
project are available. The post-docs is granted for one year renewable and
can start in October, 1999 (french people cannot apply).
