A postdoctoral position is available in Paul Adler's lab at the University 
of Virginia to study
the genetics and cell biology of planar polarity (primarily in the 
Drosophila wing) or the
morphogensis of polarized cells such as bristles or arista laterals.  The 
position is funded by
an NIH grant.  For a recent review of issues we are interested in see Adler

(Development 128:2793).  Experience in basic molecular biology techniques 
required.  Experience in
Drosophila genetics, development and/or confocal microscopy helpful.

The University of Virginia is one of the premier public universities in the 
US.  It is located
in Charlottesville- a pleasant unviersity town (about 120,000 people) about 
2 hrs south of
Washington DC.
