POSTDOCTORAL POSITION
Department of Zoology, Stockholm University, Sweden

Aminoacid neurotransmission in the CNS of Drosophila
A postdoctoral position is available for 1 year with a possibilty for an 
extension for a second year. The position is open from March 1, 2005 and is 
financed as a scholarship.  The research project is financed by a private 
foundation as well as by money from the Swedish Research Council.
The project concerns the role played by aminoacid neurotransmitters and 
their receptors in the function of the biological clock and other central 
systems of the Drosophila brain. Especially the role of G-protein-coupled 
receptors (GPCRs) for these transmitters are under study. We utilize both 
transgenic flies for in vivo studies and cultured identified neurons in 
vitro for our studies.
A PhD in a relevant area of biology is required. The applicant should have 
a background in molecular biology of Drosophila and preferably have skills 
in genetics, immuncytochemistry and cell culture techniques.

Further information on the research project and other matters can be 
provided from Dick R. Nässel

TO APPLY: Please contact Dick R. Nässel (dnassel at zoologi.su.se ) and 
include a CV, description of research experience and names of three 
references.
