   Leicester, UK: TWO POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS IN DROSOPHILA CHRONOBIOLOGY
   Two post-doctoral positions are available in the Department of
   Genetics at the University of Leicester. In this role you will join a
   new BBSRC-funded project aimed at understanding the molecular and
   cellular basis for circadian phase (chronotype) in the fruit fly
   Drosophila melanogaster. This project represents a collaboration among
   the three fly groups in Leicester (Dr Rosato, er6 from le.ac.uk; Dr Tauber,
   et22 from le.ac.uk; Prof Kyriacou, cpk from le.ac.uk) which are internationally
   recognised as a centre for excellence in the circadian field.
   Requirements:
   You will have a PhD, or in the process of submitting a PhD, in a
   relevant area of Biosciences as well as having had previous
   experience of relevant experimental techniques. For the first position
   (ref: MBP00240) these techniques include cloning, luciferase assays,
   immunofluorescence, confocal microscopy in-situ hybridisation and
   expression analysis (qPCR). For the second position (ref: MBP00224),
   previous experience with microarrays, high-throughput sequencing,
   bioinformatics and quantitative genetics would be an advantage.
   The University of Leicester is ranked within the top 12 universities
   in Britain and our aim is to climb further. A commitment to high
   quality fused with an inclusive academic culture is our hallmark and
   led the Times Higher Education Supplement to describe us as âelite
   without being elitistâ (THES 2008 âUniversity of the Yearâ).
   The deadline for applications is 15 October 2010
   For more information, please see the University website. For informal
   inquiries please contact Dr Rosato, or Dr Tauber.
   Please apply through the University website:
