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:
