Research areas include the functional analysis of transcription factors
such as homeobox genes involved in head and nervous system development
(see Cassata et al. (2000), Neuron, 25, 587-597). A future goal will be
the identification of upstream regulators and downstream targets using a
variety of approaches. In addition, we are interested in novel secreted
molecules related to hedgehog (see Asp=F6ck et al. (1999) Genome Res., 9,
Successful applicants at the postdoctoral level are expected to have
experience in standard molecular techniques, e.g., cloning, antigen
production, sequencing, and blotting. Experience with genetics and/or
with C. elegans is not a prerequisite, although advantageous. Applicants
for the Ph.D. and technician position should have a standard basic
training in molecular techniques and are expected to learn a range of
C. elegans methods, which include: generation of transgenic animals
using GFP reporter constructs, expression pattern analysis, generation
of mutant phenotypes using RNAi and/or PCR-based approaches to generate
gene deletions, analysis of mutant phenotypes by morphology,
immunohistochemistry and  GFP-reporter contructs, and behavioral assays.
Genetic screens, DNA chip technology, and yeast two-hybrid systems will
be employed for the identification of target genes. The technician is
expected to maintain worm stocks and perform other general lab tasks
(e.g., ordering). For all positions fluency in English is required.
