Molecular Entomology: Transposable elements, germline transformation in
tephritid fruit flies

A post-doctoral position is available for a two-year period with a
possibility for continuation.  Basic and applied research on the discovery
of new hobo/Ac transposon systems and the testing of existing systems
(mariner, piggyBac) for use in germline transformation of tephritid fruit
flies (see Genetics 143:1339, 1996; Gene 185:133, 1997).  Long term goals
are to create strains amenable to genetic sexing and sterilization (using
conditional lethals and sex-determination genes).   Preference will be
given to those having a theoretical and practical background in molecular
biology.  Interest and experience with transposable elements, insect
genetics, biochemistry and development are useful.  Please send (by e-mail
preferably) a CV with a summary of research interests, experience, and
three references to:
