Postdoctoral Position-Neural Circuit Development in C. elegans

A postdoctoral position is available in the Chuang laboratory in the 
Division of Developmental Biology at Cincinnati Children's Hospital 
Research Foundation beginning in December.  We are interested in 
understanding the molecular mechanisms by which functional neural 
circuits are assembled, using the small roundworm Caenorhabditis 
elegans as an experimental organism.  The lab uses a 
multidisciplinary approach that integrates genetics, molecular 
biology, cell biology, biochemistry, electrophysiology and imaging to 
address this question.  Please visit 
http://www.cincinnatichildrens.org/research/div/dev-biology/fac-labs/chuang/ 
to learn more about the lab.

This position involves the study of cell-cell communication and 
signaling events that specifies neuronal diversity.  Prior experience 
in C. elegans is helpful but not a prerequisite.  Applicants should 
have a Ph.D. degree in genetics, cell biology, molecular biology, 
neurobiology, biochemistry or similar with experience in molecular 
biology techniques.  Interested candidates please send a brief cover 
letter describing research experience, CV, and names and contact 
information of three references to Dr. Chiou-Fen Chuang at 
chioufen.chuang at alumni.caltech.edu.
