POSTDOCTORAL POSITION available starting first half of 1997 for up to 3
years for an NSF-supported investigation of the thermal stress,
heat-shock proteins, cytoplasmic incompatibility, and Wolbachia
infection in Drosophila.  This multidisciplinary project involves both
field and laboratory studies to measure protein expression via 2-D
electrophoresis, sperm purification, and bacterial (Wolbachia) levels
via immunofluorescence/confocal microscopy.  Field and modeling studies
are an important component of the research and attempt to link the
foregoing laboratory measurements to the consequences of heat stress on
fitness in the wild.  We ideally seek an individual who is facile in all
of the above techniques, but also welcome applications from individuals
with expertise in some of the above and willingness to master the
others, or from individuals with abilities and interests in part of the
project who might be interested in a shorter appointment.

Send letter of application, curriculum vitae, and names of 3 references
