A postdoctoral position is available immediately to study mechanisms 
of transcriptional repression in the Drosophila. We are focusing on 
the role of transcriptional corepressors, dCtBP and others, in 
short-range repression.  Another project aims to understand 
development of head region in the early embryo. We will identify 
transcriptional activators and repressors .  Yeast two-hybrid assays, 
in vitro binding assays, protein purification, creation of transgenic 
flies, in situ hybridization, RNAi in flies and/or tissue cultures, 
and bioinformatics will be employed.
