       Applications for postdoctoral and research assistant positions are=
 immediately available in my laboratory. Candidates should be highly=
 motivated and have good expertise in molecular biology, biochemistry and/or=
 cell biology techniques.=20

       Current work underway in the laboratory focus on studying biogenic=
 steps of G- protein coupled receptors and phosphoinositide signaling in=
 neuronal cells ( We have=
 been particularly interested in investigating i) the molecular mechanisms=
 underlying the function of a new neuronal signaling pathway mediated by a=
 novel PI-phospholipase C (e.g. Ferreira, P. et al. (1994). J. Biol. Chem.,=
 269, 3129; Ferreira, P. et  al. (1993) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA, 90,=
 6042) and, ii) the molecular machinery involved in the intracellular=
 processing and  trafficking of homologous G-protein coupled receptors in=
 highly polarized neuronal cells (e.g. Ferreira et al. (1998), J. Biol.=
 Chem. 273, 24676; Ferreira, P. et al. (1997)  Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA,=
 94, 1556; Ferreira, P. et al. (1996) Nature 383, 637; Ferreira, P. et al.=
 (1995) J. Biol. Chem. 270, 23179).  In addition, we are using our studies=
 as a model system to study widespread homologous molecular mechanisms in=
 other biological systems and understand the molecular pathogenesis=
 underlying certain inherited neurological disorders in humans which=
 ultimately lead to the degeneration of selective neurons in the CNS. The=
 laboratory and institution are equipped with state-of-art facilities and=
 operate in an outstanding research environment. The prospective candidate=
 is expected to participate in campus-wide interactive programs such as=
 seminars and ultimately, present his\her research results at international=
 meetings and publish in top-rated scientific journals.  Salary is based on=
 experience and NIH guidelines.

       Candidates with an overall interest in neurobiology are invited to=
 apply and should send their CV, summary of their past research experience=
 and future goals, and three reference letters directly to:
