Hi,

    I'm a 5th year graduate student in Physical Chemistry (specialization 
Computational Neurobiology).  I will be finishing my Ph.D. in August (if 
I find a job).  I'm looking for a postodoctoral position in the field 
of manic-depression and depression research.  
    I know that my objective and my experience don't exactly match, but
I've done a great deal of reading in this field and I would very much like
to get into it.  I also plan to take some pharmacology classes during my
last semester(s) of graduate school in order to 'beef up' my transcript in
this respect.  It should also be recognized by reading my resume that I am
flexible and a quick learner (ex., Ph.D. in 5 years in a field where the
average is 6 to 7 years).  I don't think it will take that much time for 
me to get 'up to par' in this new field.
    If anyone out there in knows of *any* such positions, please let me know.  

				Sincerely,
				   Dr. Eva S. Simmons
