POSTDOCTORAL POSITION studying VISUAL TRANSDUCTION and RETINAL DEGENERATION
in Drosophila.  This position is available to begin at any time in the
coming year and is funded for up to three years through the NIH-National
Eye Institute. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in either molecular biology,
cell biology, genetics, biochemistry, or electrophysiology. The applicant
will conduct independent research with emphasis on the molecular mechanisms
of signal transduction and how pertubations in the transduction cascade
leads to degeneration.  Specifically the lab is studying the role of
G-alpha proteins in visual transduction (Lee et al. (1990) Neuron
5:889-898) and a novel phosphatidylinositol transfer protein involved in
intracellular trafficking or ion transport (Vihtelic et al. (1993) J. Cell
Biol. 122:1013-1022).  Primary emphasis will be on the Drosophila visual
system, with an opportunity to explore additional signal transduction
cascades (such as the role of guanylyl cyclases in the fly brain).  The lab
employs a multi-faceted approach, encompassing molecular and cell biology,
biochemistry genetics, and electrophysiology to examine these general
processes.  This position provides an excellent opportunity to develop a
research project that the candidate will be able to take when he/she
leaves.  The candidate will be encouraged to apply for independent funding
through several different agencies.  Salary will be commensurate with
qualifications and experience.
