A position is available in the Developmental Neurobiology Group within the Division of
Neuroscience, in the John Curtin School of Medical Research, Australian National University.
This group researches the developmental processes that are essential for establishing correct
connectivity of the nervous and the application of this knowledge in assisting regeneration
after nerve damage. The research uses immunological, molecular biological, biochemical and
histochemical techniques to study the roles of neurotrophic factors and their second messenger
molecules. The specific aims of the research over the next three years will be to identify which
second messenger molecules are involved in the neurite outgrowth and neurone survival
response to a variety of neurotrophic factors. The successful applicant must have a PhD and
appropriate experience in the areas of neurotrophin or second messenger biochemistry.
Enquires should be addressed to the head of the group (Dr. Ian Hendry) phone 062494780,
