Postdoctoral Scientist
(Karolinska Institutet)

Highly motivated individuals are invited to apply for a postdoctoral 
scientist appointment in the Division of Matrix Biology (MBB) at the 
Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden.  Our research group is interested
in the developmental signals that control growth and differentiation
during vertebrate kidney organogenesis. Our lab is  using the zebrafish
embryonic kidney or pronephros as a model system.   Topics of
investigation include nephron formation, tubulogenesis, and  glomerular
morphogenesis (Development, 125, pp. 4655-67, 1998; Dev.  Biol. 222, pp.
147-57, 2000, Development, 127, pp, 2089-98, 2000).  Experimental
approaches include genetic screens, molecular cloning,  morpholino
technology, and transgenesis.

Research will be conducted in the new Karolinska Institutet Zebrafish 
Facility on the KI (Solna) campus.  Qualified applicants must have a  PhD
in molecular, cell or developmental biology.  Please submit applications
by October 1st, 2004.  Please send complete applications  including cover
