Post-doctoral and/or technician positions are available immediately to 
study mechanisms of transcriptional repression in the Drosophila embryo. We 
are focusing on the role of transcriptional corepressors, dCtBP and others, 
in short-range repression.  This type of repression establishes enhancer 
autonomy in complex gene loci, and creates characteristic patterns of gene 
expression, such as the seven-stripe patterns of eve and hairy expression. 
Yeast two-hybrid assays, in vitro binding assays, protein purification, 
creation of transgenic flies, in situ hybridization, and RNAi in flies 
and/or tissue cultures will be employed.

Candidates for the post-doctoral position should have experience in either 
Drosophila genetics, Biochemistry, or Molecular Biology.  Applicants must 
have either a Ph.D. or MD and less than five years of postdoctoral 
experience.
For the technician position, a degree is required in a field of biology, or 
an equivalent combination of education. Additional laboratory experience in 
Drosophila genetics or molecular biology is preferred.
Applicants should send a cover letter, a CV, and names of 3 referees to the 
address below (e-mail is preferred).
