A new NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available immediately to 
study development of the ocular lens using mutant and wild-type 
zebrafish.  Projects will center on the molecular characterization of 
several zebrafish lens mutants that were previously isolated 
(Vihtelic et al. (2001) Developmental Dynamics, 222: 625-636; 
Vihtelic and Hyde (2002) Vision Research, 42: 535-540). 

The ideal applicant will be proficient in molecular and histological 
techniques.  Previous experience working with the zebrafish model 
system will be beneficial, but is not necessary.  The opportunity to 
develop additional research projects is possible and encouraged. 

The University of Notre Dame's Center for Zebrafish Research 
maintains a state-of-the-art, 1800 sq. ft. zebrafish facility. Full-time 
animal care technicians handle routine husbandry and the facility 
system operations 365 days per year.  High throughput DNA 
sequencing and microscopy facilities are available. 

A letter describing research background and interests, C.V. and 
three references should be emailed (preferred means: 
dhyde at or mailed to:
