Two postdoctoral positions are available immediately to study the 
molecular and cellular mechanisms of pattern formation in the 
zebrafish embryo.
Areas of primary interest:  left-right axis specification,  
cardiovascular development, and screening for novel maternal and 
zygotic mutations perturbing either of these processes. 
For more details, see our laboratory webpage at http://zfin.org/ZFIN.
Children's Hospital has the second largest NIH-sponsored research 
budget among U.S. pediatric hospitals and the eighth largest of 
any hospital in the country. It is immediately adjacent to the 
University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, which includes an 
internationally recognized Department of Cell and Developmental 
Biology.

Preference will be given to applicants with strong background in 
genetics, cell and/or developmental biology, or molecular biology. 
Experience with the zebrafish system, although desirable, is not 
essential. Please submit a CV and the contact information for three 
references to: Alvin J. Chin, Cardiac Center, The Children=92s
