Post-Doctoral Position at Weill Medical College of

Cornell University in New York City

A position is available for post-doctoral scientists to investigate the 
cell biology of salivary gland tube formation in developing Drosophila 
embryos.  The project involves (1) mapping of EMS mutations generated 
by a recent mutagenesis screen which give rise to interesting defects 
in glandular tube formation, (2) identification of corresponding 
wild-type genes and (3) characterization of the mutant phenotypes by 
light and electron microscopy.

Candidates should have experience in molecular and/or cell biology, and 
preferably in fly genetics.  Although a minimum of two years of funding 
is available for this position, candidates are encouraged to acquire 
their own source of funding.  Cornell University Weill Medical College 
is located in one of the liveliest neighborhoods of Manhattan where 
post-doctoral fellows can receive subsidized university housing.  Close 
proximity of the medical college to neighboring Rockefeller University 
and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center provides outstanding 
opportunities for scientific education and collaborations.

Please submit a letter with your research interests and career 
objectives, your curriculum vitae, and three reference letters to: Dr. 
Monn Myat, Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, Weill Medical 
College of Cornell University, 1300 York Avenue, New York, NY 10021.
