Titel: Postdoctoral and Ph.D. positions available

KAROLINSKA INSTITUTET
Department of Biosciences at Novum

Applications are invited for the following positions in the research 
group of Dr Thomas B=FCrglin working with the Caenorhabditis elegans 
model system. The laboratory is located in a new building (BiPontus) 
in the south of Stockholm, in the Novum Research Park.

1 Postdoctoral fellow /Postdokstipendium
1 PhD Student/Doktorand

Research areas include the functional analysis of transcription 
factors such as homeobox genes involved in head and nervous system 
development (see Neuron, 25, 587-597). A future goal will be the 
identification of upstream regulators and downstream targets. In 
addition, we are interested in novel secreted molecules related to 
hedgehog (see Genome Res., 9, 909-923). Successful applicants will 
have experience in standard molecular techniques (cloning, antigen 
production, sequencing, blotting), as well as genetics. Experience 
with C. elegans is preferred, although not absolutly required. The 
range of  C. elegans methods used 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. Expression and function of genes will be studied 
during development and in the nervous system of C. elegans.
