1.  A postdoctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Dr. Sherry A.
Ferguson in the Division of Neurotoxicology at the National Center
for Toxicological Research (NCTR)/Food and Drug Administration in
Jefferson, Arkansas is available.  The successful applicant will
work on research projects already in progress.  Specifically, several
sexually-dimorphic behaviors are being evaluated in rats
developmentally and chronically exposed to estrogenic compounds. 
The compounds of interest are: genistein, methoxychlor, nonylphenol,
vinclozolin, and ethinyl estradiol.  A strong background in
statistical analysis of large data sets is desired.  The initial
appointment is for one year with a maximum of three years available.
Starting salary range is approximately $37,000.  Note that the
laboratory location is in Jefferson, Arkansas, a small rural
community approximately 35 miles south of Little Rock.  For
application, contact Ms. Linda McCamant, ORISE, P.O. Box 117, Oak
Ridge, TN 37831 USA (phone: 423-576-1089).  Send completed
application to ORISE, but send a copy of CV to Dr. Sherry Ferguson,

2.  A postdoctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Dr. Sherry A.
Ferguson in the Division of Neurotoxicology at the National Center
for Toxicological Research (NCTR)/Food and Drug Administration in
Jefferson, Arkansas is available.  The successful applicant will
assist in ongoing rodent behavioral teratology projects (described
below) as well as propose and conduct independent research on
FDA-relevant compounds in the general area of neurobehavioral
teratology. A background in microdialysis or the measurement of
social behavior in rodents is desired but not necessary.  Ongoing
projects include:  1) the neurobehavioral teratology of prenatal
treatment with retinoids, 2) animal models of Attention Deficit
Hyperactivity Disorder induced by developmental cerebellar stunting.
Areas of interest include the attenuation or exacerbation of
neurobehavioral deficits by differential environments.  The initial
appointment is for one year with a maximum of three years available.
Starting salary range is approximately $37,000.  Note that the
