Postdoctoral Position Available

A postdoctoral position is available to work on the development of 
the lateral line in Danio and other fish species. Our work 
concentrates on the genes that control the patterning of the sense 
organs (and in particular the migration events that are central to 
this patterning), and on the genes that control the connectivity of 
the sensory neurons. The lab is excellently equipped for advanced 
microscopy (Nipkow disc confocal, pressure- and iontophoretic-
injection set ups, laser attachment, slow-scan Princeton camera). 
We are located on the University campus together with groups 
working on cell biology, parasitology, neurosciences, and virology; 
in addition several research institutes are within walking distance of 
the campus. Montpellier is a delightful and culturally very active 
city, and Languedoc is (in my view) the most attractive region of 

We are seeking applicants with excellent background in molecular 
biology and curious to learn more about development in a simple, 
defined, accessible model system. An interest in evolutionary 
questions would be welcome.  Funding (from INSERM, France's 
NIH homolog) is available at minimum for one year. The position 
must be occupied at the latest on June 1, 2003.
