2 Postdoctoral research positions are available for individuals
interested in vertebrate genetics and genome analysis at the
National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI).
1) Identification and Characterization of Genes Associated with
Ear Development in Zebrafish and Their Relationship to Human
Diseases. This position will study mutations affecting the zebrafish
ear isolated in an insertional mutagenesis screen.
2) Establishing Technologies for using Retroviruses as a Tool to
Study Vertebrate Development. This position will use retrovirus
technology to study zebrafish on a genome-wide basis. Possible
projects include: "library" of mapped proviral integrations, gene-
trapping schemes, inducable over-expression vectors.
Candidates should possess an MD and/or PhD and have fewer
than five years of postdoctoral experience. Please send a letter,
