Postdoc position - signal transduction & transcription

Applications are invited for postdoctoral positions in a newly
established research group at the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research
(LICR) in Uppsala, Sweden. The successful candidates will study the
transcriptional regulation of metabolic pathways and the transcriptional
mechanisms of growth factor signal transduction (Ericsson et al. (1996)
Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 93, 945-950; Ericsson et al. (1996) J.
Biol. Chem., 271, 24359-24367; Ericsson and Edwards. (1998) J. Biol.
Chem., in press; Heldin et al. (1997) Nature, 390, 465-471; Dennler et
al. (1998) EMBO J., 17, 3091-3100). The aim is to identify the
downstream targets (i.e. transcription factors, coactivators and
corepressors) of these signaling pathways and to determine how these
molecules regulate gene expression. We are also interested in how
abnormal regulation of these processes is related to the development of
human disease. We are seeking highly motivated scientists (Ph.D./M.D.)
with strong backgrounds in molecular and cellular biology, gene
expression, transcriptional regulation and signal transduction. Funding
is available from the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research and the
Swedish Natural Science Research Council. However, candidates will also
be encouraged to apply for external awards and fellowships. The
positions are available starting October, 1998.

The Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research is an international
organization which uses a multi-disciplinary approach to study cell
growth, differentiation and cancer. The Uppsala branch is located within
the Biomedical Center at the University of Uppsala. The institute has
exceptional facilities and offers the opportunity to work with leading
scientists in an international and team-oriented environment. For more
