I am looking for a postdoc (to start soon) in my lab in the Gentics Dept at Leicester 
University,UK. At present, there are two graduate students and a technician in the lab. (There 
are two other fly groups in the department: Bambos Kyriacou - genetics and evolution of 
circadian rhythms; Gabby Dover - evolution of developmental mechanisms and repeat DNA 
sequences.)
Here are some details of the job.
Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work on the genetic analysis 
of Enhancer of split genes and their role in regulating cell fate commitment during Drosophila 
development, funded by the BBSRC (as part of the commitment and determination initiative). The 
aim of this work is to further define the function of these genes (which encode bHLH proteins) 
in neurogenesis, to test their role in myogenesis and to clone related genes from other 
insects. The work will involve molecular biology techniques, fly genetics and antibody 
staining of larval tissues.
Candidates should have (or expect soon to have) a PhD in Genetics, Molecular Biology or 
related discipline. The position is available immediately for 3 years and the salary is on the 
R&A 1A scale (#14,317 to #21,519 pa, depending on experience). Applicants should send a 
curriculum vitae and the names and addresses of two referees to Dr. F. Tata, Department of 
Genetics, University of Leicester, University Road, Leicester LE1 7RH, from whom further 
details can be obtained. (Tel: 0116 252 3428 Fax: 0116 252 3378 email: fat1 at le.ac.uk.)
