A three year Post-graduate/Postdoctoral position funded by the 
BBSRC is available immediately in the laboratory of Professor 
Philip Ingham at the University of Sheffield, UK. The project aim is 
to understand the function of novel T-box (tbx) genes in the 
development of the zebrafish. This will involve the isolation of cDNA 
and genomic clones, generation of fusion proteins for use in DNA 
binding assays and as immunogens and expression and functional 
analyses of tbx-cDNAs in developing embryos. Experience with 
zebrafish as a model system would be beneficial, but is not 
essential. Prior experience with either library screening, PCR 
methods, radiation hybrid or genetic mapping techniques will be 
useful; training in other techniques will be provided. Excellent 
facilities are available to study zebrafish development at the 
molecular and genetic level.
