Postdoctoral Research Associate 

       Position available for work in a multi-disciplinary laboratory
studying cellular and
       molecular basis of response of developing neural tissues to injury
induced by
       environmental exposure. Developmental "endocrine disruption" by specific
       environmental contaminants will also be pursued. Systems include
developing
       mammalian and frog embryos, organotypic brain slice cultures, neural
cell line
       culture, and yeast/human receptor assays, with emphasis at all
levels on cytokine
       and hormonal regulation of neural function. Methods to be employed
include
       molecular biology, confocal microscopy, immunocytochemistry, and calcium
       measurements. Guaranteed 1 year position with strong potential for
additional years
       support. An interest in environmental issues is recommended. Contact
