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.
