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
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. Weill Medical College of Cornell University 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 Monn Myat,
Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, Weill Medical College of
Cornell University, 1300 York Ave., New York, NY 10021. E-mail:
