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
