Circadian Rhythms in Drosophila
An NIH funded postdoctoral position is available to study the
molecular bases and physiological significance of circadian rhythms.
Microarray studies suggested that the expression of many genes show
daily rhythmic pattern; however, the significance of these rhythms is
not clear. Our long-term goal is to understand the mechanism by which
clock genes control downstream genes and the roles of rhythmic gene
expression in cellular physiology.
Postdoctoral fellow will investigate interactions of clock proteins
encoded by period and timeless genes with other cellular proteins in
different organs to understand the roles of clock proteins in
reproduction, metabolism, stress resistance, and aging. The project
involves isolating protein complexes using flies transformed with
tagged PER or TIM proteins, identification of interacting proteins by
mass spectrometry and elucidation of their roles by genetic and
Candidates should have background in biochemistry and molecular
biology. Priority will be given to candidates who have documented
experience in using Drosophila genetic tools.
Oregon State University is situated in Corvallis between Portland and
Eugene. Pacific Ocean beaches, rivers, forests, high desert, and the
rugged Cascade and Coast Ranges are all within a 100-mile drive of
Corvallis. The university has commitment to diversity and multiculturalism.
