Netrins are key secreted molecules mediating chemoattraction of growth
cones in the spinal cord. The receptors responsible for this aspect of
development have been recently isolated. A postdoctoral position is
immediately available to study the mechanism of receptor action in the
Department of Cell Biology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center;
expertise in making monoclonal antibodies would be a plus. The
laboratory is studying novel genes involved in the netrin signalling
pathway (Cell (1996) 87: 197-204), and in neuronal morphogenesis and
axon guidance (Neuron (1995) 15: 273-286). Both Drosophila genetics and
biochemical assays in vertebrates will be used to study gene function.
Qualified candidates should possess either an M.D. or Ph.D., have no
more than two years postgraduate experience, and have a strong graduate
training in genetics, biochemistry, or molecular biology. Please send
your c.v. and three letters of reference to: Dr. Peter Kolodziej, 802
Light Hall, Vanderbilt School of Medicine, Nashville, TN 37232-0295.
