I'm looking for postdocs interested in studying the early stages of 
Drosophila postsynaptic development (induction and regulation of NMJ 
glutamate receptor clusters during late embryogenesis-early L1).  
Candidates should have extensive experience with Drosophila genetics & 
molecular biology -or- patch-clamp electrophysiology.   These 
techniques, in combination with immunocytochemistry (we also have our 
own laser-scanning confocal in the lab), are most of the arsenal we use 
to identify new genes and mechanisms required for receptor induction 
and clustering.   The position(s) are funded by a pending (starting 
spring 2003) NIH grant.

The lab is brand-new (started just this past September), at the 
University of Illinois at Chicago, so everything is brand new and all 
the best projects are still available!

you'll get the idea)
