Two postdoctoral positions are available to study development and 
function in the zebrafish retina.  A background in genetics, 
molecular biology, or cell biological techniques is highly desirable.  
Potential projects include:  studying how resident stem cells in the 
inner retina regenerate photoreceptors after retinal damage, cloning 
and characterizing retinal-specific genes, characterizing and 
cloning the genes involved in retinal and lens developmental and 
degeneration mutants and genetic screens to identify additional 
mutants, and generating transgenic fish as models for human 
retinal and lens diseases.  The University of Notre Dame has 
committed to a major expansion of zebrafish research (new faculty 
positions and increasing the space of the zebrafish facility to 2,000 
square feet).  Both positions are funded (salary and travel to 
meetings) by the newly created Center for Zebrafish Research.  
The South Bend, IN area is safe, possesses very affordable 
housing, and is only 1.5 hours from downtown Chicago or 45 
minutes from wonderful Lake Michigan beaches. Interested 
applicants should submit a cv, a statement of research background 
and interests, and three letters of recommendation via Email to:
