Postdoctoral position, Maine lab, Syracuse University

A postdoctoral position is available in my laboratory in the Dept of 
Biology at Syracuse University.  Our research focuses on 
understanding the regulation of gene expression and cell fate in the 
C. elegans germ line.  We use a variety of genetic, molecular, cell 
biological, and biochemical approaches to study these questions.

This position involves studying the regulation of meiotic silencing 
of unpaired chromatin, including the identification and analysis of 
components of the meiotic silencing machinery and targets of the 
silencing process.  Funding is available for three years, although 
the applicant will be encouraged to apply for his/her own funding. 

The Syracuse University Dept of Biology has numerous faculty studying 
aspects of developmental biology and gene regulation, as well as the 
relationship between evolution and development, in a variety of 
organisms, including C. elegans, Drosophila, fish, and mouse.  There 
is a strong germline research group.  An overview of faculty research 
is available at http://biology.syr.edu/.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree with experience in molecular 
biology, genetics, and/or biochemistry.  Interested candidates should 
send a cover letter describing research experience, a CV, preprints 
of work in preparation or in press, and the names and addresses of 
three people who can provide recommendations to Dr. Eleanor Maine, 
Dept of Biology, 108 College Place, Syracuse, NY 13244 or 
emmaine at syr.edu.
