A postdoctoral position is immediately available in the Department of 
Cell Biology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.  Areas of 
investigation include the netrin signalling pathway, neuronal 
morphogenesis and axon guidance, and tumor progression (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.  
T:615/343-7298.  F.615/343-4726.
E-mail:  peter.kolodziej at mcmail.vanderbilt.edu  EOE.

The attached document shows the expression of frazzled (red), a likely 
netrin receptor, on Drosophila embryonic CNS axons (green).  CNS axons 
are disrupted in frazzled null mutants; netrins are secreted by midline 
cells.
