Role of vegetal maternal factors in chordate axis and germ cell

Human Frontier Science Programme Network

Applications are invited for 4 postdoctoral positions, one to be held in

each of the laboratories marked with an asterisk in the list below, to
work on a project concerned with the specification of the embryonic axis
and germ cells in ascidians and Xenopus. A special focus will be given
to the identification of maternal determinants and the study of the
mechanisms responsible for their correct localisation in the egg. The
project involves a multidisciplinary approach, and the role of each
participating laboratory is indicated below. Successful candidates will
be involved in exchange visits between the different laboratories.

Informal enquiries may be made to any of the participating laboratories.
Candidates should be under the age of 35 and should hold a doctoral

Copies of all applications should also be sent to the coordinator of the
project, Dr. Patrick Lemaire. Successful applicants are expected to
start between December 1998 and June 1999.
