Netrins are key molecules mediating chemoattraction of commissural axon
growth cones towards the midline.  The receptors responsible have been
recently isolated.  A postdoctoral position is immediately available to
study their mechanism of action in the Department of Cell Biology at
Vanderbilt University Medical Center.  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, Howard Hughes
Medical Institute, 802 Light Hall, Vanderbilt School of Medicine,
Nashville, TN 37232-0295.  T:615/343-7298.  F.615/343-4726.  E-mail:
