Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position to study inner ear
development in zebrafish. Since the complex structure of the ear 
from a simple ectodermal thickening it provides a wonderful system 
studying differentiation and morphogenesis of a sensory structure.
Specific questions on ear development will be addressed using 
genetic and biological imaging techniques. Currently, my laboratory
studies cell lineage and gene function in the developing inner ear of 
frog, Xenopus, and lateral line development in zebrafish. Research
experience in molecular biology desired. The House Ear Institute is 
private research institute located near downtown Los Angeles, a 
drive from most of the research universities in Southern California. The
institute has new and state of the art research facilities including a
confocal microscope. Starting time is flexible with the position available
starting January 2000. Minority candidates are encouraged to apply.
Interested individuals should send a CV, a summary of past research
experience, and the names of three references.
