Functional Genomic Studies in Aging.

  The Genome Sequence Centre (, Vancouver, in collaboration
with Prof Don Riddle, University of Missouri, is seeking post-doctoral
researchers to participate in high-throughput functional genomic studies in
C. elegans, specifically focusing on genes involved in aging and dauer
biology.  Previous experience in standard C. elegans procedures, including
microinjection would be considered assets.
  The study, funded by the National Institute on Aging, NIH, will concentrate
on gene targets determined through a combination of gene expression studies
and bioinformatic approaches.  Positions would therefore suit a candidates
having familiarity with the bioinformatic tools available for C. elegans and
who would like the opportunity to develop their bioinformatic skills.  The
successful applicant would be located at the GSC, Vancouver.

Please send applications to jobs at, or see Prof. Don Riddle at the
UCLA worm meeting.
