Two postdoctoral positions are available to study signal transduction
and organ development in Drosophila.  The first position aims to define
the signaling pathway for Tec29, a novel Tec family tyrosine kinase that
regulates ring canal growth during oogenesis.  The other position will
identify genes that control the initial determination of salivary gland
cells and genes that direct the complex and carefully coordinated
morphogenetic movements that construct the mature salivary glands and

Ideally, successful candidates would have substantial background either
in Drosophila genetics and molecular biology or in morphogenesis and
regulation of cytoskeletal organization.  The positions are available
immediately, but could be kept open until next fall if necessary.
