3 postdoctoral positions are available immediately in the area of Cell and
Molecular Biology.

Two positions available to study mechanisms of gene regulation and signal
transduction in smooth muscle.  Current emphasis is on a) regulation of
expression of a novel myosin light chain kinase by extracellular matrix and
cell adhesion molecules b) role of this novel kinase in regulation of
cellular proliferation c) in vitro analysis of smooth muscle specific
promoters d) generation of transgenic mouse models with  altered smooth
muscle development e) identification and characterization of smooth muscle
transcription factors. Experience in cellular and molecular biology  is
required.  Interested candidates should send curriculum vitae to:  Patricia
J. Gallagher, Ph.D.  and  B.Paul Herring, Ph.D., Department of Physiology,
635 Barnhill Dr., Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, IN
46202.  (email inquiries to: PGALLAG at INDYVAX.IUPUI.EDU or
HERRING at KIMAIL.DMED.IUPUI.EDU).


One position available to study the role of integrin cytoplasmic domains in
regulating cell adhesion.  Current emphasis is on a) the role of integrin
cytoplasmic domains in regulating neutrophil adhesion to the endothelium, b)
mechanisms of cytoskeletal-integrin interactions, c) mechanisms of signaling
through integrins, and d) the identification and characterization of novel
integrin cytoplasmic domain-binding proteins.  Experience in cellular and
molecular biology is required.  Background in the cytoskeleton or cell
adhesion is desirable.  Interested candidates should  send a curriculum
vitae to: Fred Pavalko, Ph.D., Department of Physiology, 635 Barnhill Dr.,
Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, IN 46202.  (email
inquiries to: FPAVALKO at INDYVAX.IUPUI.EDU).
