 2 POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS IN SWEDEN STARTING FEB. 2003
 
2 Postdoctoral positions for 2 years starting as of Feb. 2003 in the lab 
of Stefan Baumgartner, Lund University, Sweden.  Research topic is a 
genetic screen aimed at the isolation of novel tumor suppressor loci in 
Drosophila using piggyBac. The neighboring Häcker lab has recently 
established a novel technique where a new non-P-element based germ line 
transformation system was developed to allow insertional mutagenesis in 
Drosophila.  The system is based on the use of Hermes and piggyBac 
transposable elements which carry the GFP coding region under the 
control of an artificial Pax6 promoter as a dominant marker to allow 
detection of the transposons in the genome.
Applicants should have a thorough education in genetics, preferably 
having working experience with Drosophila.  The Baumgartner lab is one 
of two Drosophila labs at Lund University, and has excellent 
facilities.  Most researchers are foreigners which creates a lively 
atmosphere.  Lund University is located opposite Copenhagen on the 
Swedish side and represents the biggest University in whole Scandinavia. 
Informal inquires can be made to Stefan.Baumgartner at medkem.lu.se.  Check
