Postdoctoral positions of duration 6-24 months are available 
immediately at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology 
(Heraklion, Crete, Greece), funded by the EU Marie Curie Development 
Host Program. The research will focus on the study of cellular events 
controlling the birth, migration and differentiation of neurons using 
genetic approaches in Drosophila and mouse models. Genes of interest 
include the Drosophila bHLH proneural genes and neuralized 
(Delidakis), the murine neurl gene (Moschonas) and new genes involved 
in differentiation and migration in the mammalian forebrain 
(Karagogeos). Previous experience in molecular biology is necessary 
and some exposure to microarray expression profiling is desirable.

The applicants must hold a PhD degree and be 35 years old or less. 
They must be EU (non-Greek) nationals or nationals of an EU 
Associated country. If they are non-EU or Associated country 
nationals, then they must have resided in an EU country for at least 
the last 5 years.

The IMBB provides very good infrastructure for molecular biology, 
microscopy (transmission/ Nomarski, fluorescence and confocal), 
flyroom, transgenesis and cell culture facilities, sequencing service 
etc.  In combination with the neighbouring Medical School and Biology 
Dept. of the University of Crete, there is a good-sized biomedical 
community fostering scientific exchange and creativity.

The labs are located in a rural setting a few kilometres outside the 
city of Heraklion - a bustling mediterranean port city catering for 
all needs of a modern lifestyle but also full of historical charm. 
The countryside of Crete provides excellent opportunities for 
outdoors activities and is within easy reach from the city.  Cost of 
living is still low by comparison to most other EU countries.

Interested applicants are asked to contact directly any of the 
following P.I.s : Christos Delidakis (delidaki at imbb.forth.gr), Domna 
Karagogeos (karagoge at imbb.forth.gr), Nikos Moschonas 
(moschona at imbb.forth.gr).
