Dear All:

I'm setting up new lab at The Comprehensive Cancer Center, Ohio State
University.  Currently I have two postdocs working with me.  I have several
positions availble for either Postdocs or Research Associate/Assistant
(Technicians), as well as for graduate students.  Previous experience in
Drosophila research is not necessary.  Those interested shall apply directly.

We work on Cell Cycle regulation during Drosophila development. Our main
focus is on the control mechanisms of DNA replication initiation.  We are
also starting to look into multi-function of ORC1 and Cdc6 outside of DNA
