Postdoctoral position available starting February 1, 2004 in the 
Department of Physiology, UCLA School of Medicine, Los Angeles, CA. 
(position open until 12/31/04) 

Do you have expertise in zebrafish molecular genetics, and are 
looking for a new experience using these skills?  The neuroendocrine 
physiology laboratory of Dr. Nancy Wayne has initiated a new project 
using zebrafish as a model for investigating the cell physiology that 
regulates the function of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) 
neurons, which controls reproduction in all vertebrates.  No prior 
experience in electrophysiology and optical imaging necessary - we 
will train you in these techniques.  Projects include: development of 
transgenic zebrafish expressing GFP in GnRH neurons; measurement of 
membrane excitability and calcium signaling from GnRH neurons during 
development and aging, under different photoperiodic conditions, and 
in response to different sex-steroid milieus.  Salary commensurate 
with experience.  For more information, go to: 

Please send inquiries and application (curriculum vitae, statement of 
research experience, 3 names of references) to: Dr. Nancy Wayne 
(Email: nwayne at; FAX: 310-206-5661).  

Thank you,
Nancy Wayne
