The following is a slightly embellished version of an advertisement that=
 recently appeared in "Genetics" describing the availability of a=
 postdoctoral position in this laboratory.  It offers a good opportunity for=
 a well-trained individual who is interested in the interface between=
 genetics and the environment from the molecular point of view.   Interested=
 persons are encouraged to contact me (Iain Cartwright) directly by e-mail=
 in the first instance.



                      POSTDOCTORAL POSITION


A postdoctoral position is available immediately to pursue research on the=
 study of genes
involved in individual genetic variability in response to environmental=
 toxicants.  Studies currently underway are based in the Drosophila model=
 system and are focussing on the molecular identification and=
 characterization of genes conferring tolerance to heavy metal toxicity, in=
 particular lead, with a view to extending these studies to the mammalian=
 situation as appropriate.  Candidates should have a strong background in a=
 range of molecular genetic techniques, in particular PCR, with some=
 experience in quantitative genetic analysis being highly desirable but not=
 absolutely required.  The position is available for 2-3 years.  Interested=
 individuals should respond (preferably by e-mail) by sending a curriculum=
 vitae, a brief statement of research background and interests, and the=
 names of three references to: Dr. Iain Cartwright, Department of Molecular=
 Genetics, University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, P. O. Box 670524,=
 Cincinnati, OH 45267, U.S.A.  FAX: 513-558-8474; Email:=
