Dear Netters,
I realize this is the inappropriate group for this but somehow I can't post
in  the jobs newsgroup so bare with me!

Subject: POST DOC IN MOLECULAR BIOLOGY OF FERTILIZATION

                    CSIRO DIVISION OF WILDLIFE & ECOLOGY

                           POST DOCTORAL FELLOW
                                    IN
                      MOLECULAR BIOLOGY OF FERTILIZATION

LOOKING FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT? LOOKING FOR A WAY TO APPLY THOSE MOLECULAR
SKILLS TO A REAL WORLD PROBLEM AND STILL DO SOME INTERESTING SCIENCE? WANT
TO SPEND A COUPLE OF YEARS IN SUNNY AUSTRALIA?

Background

A fellowship is available within the reproductive biology group of the CRC
for Biological control of vertebrate pests. The work of the CRC was recently
(6 August p683) featured in Science in Research News. Briefly put the
mission of the CRC is to develop a means for controlling pest species by
controlling their fertility. The approach taken is to identify gamete
components involved in gamete reconition, clone the encoding genes and
insert them into a viral vector. Animals mount an immune response both to the
vector proteins and to the product of the gamete gene. This response is
immunocontraceptive.

The Position

The successful applicant will work in the laboratory of Dr Michael Holland.
The task of this laboratory is the identification, cloning, sequencing,
expression and testing of gamete recognition molecules for their potential
as immunocontraceptives. The person needs good molecular skills with
competence in library screening, sequencing and expression.

Salary is in the region $A36-40,000 ($US25-28,000 approximately). The
appointment will last 2 years with possibility of a third year. AIRFARES AND
LIMITED REMOVAL EXPENSES TO AUSTRALIA WILL BE PAID.

Further information can be obtained by direct e-mail or from the phone or
fax numbers given (remember we are 13 hours ahead of East Coast Time!!)
