A Postdoctoral position is available to study the developmental  
regulation of organ and body size in Drosophila. This is an exciting  
new research area that combines developmental physiology with  
molecular genetics. Current research focuses on the role the insulin- 
signaling pathway plays in regulating the relationship between final  
organ size and body size, and the influence of organ growth-rates on  
the timing of metamorphosis in flies (Shingleton et al. (2005), PLOS  
Biology 3 (9); Shingleton (2005), Current Biology 15 (20), R825-R827).

We are a recently established lab, working in newly renovated space  
at Michigan State University. We are looking to expand our team with  
energetic and career-motivated scientists, who are able to work both  
independently and co-operatively with a team. The ideal scientist is  
one with a background in cell and molecular biology, developmental  
genetics or insect physiology, preferably with an interest in  
integrative biology and evolution. A Ph.D. degree is required and the  
position is available immediately. Salary is commensurate with  
experience. This position is limited to applicants who are currently  
studying or working in the US or are a permanent U.S. resident or  
U.S. citizen.

Please send vita, a statement of research interests, and three  
reference contacts to Dr. Alexander Shingleton, shingle9 at msu.edu

Applications will be considered until the position is filled.
