POST DOCTORAL POSITIONS VACANT

                1) Molecular Biologist - PLP and Leukodystrophy

                2) Molecular Biologist - Tight Junctions
 

1) Molecular Biologist

We are looking for self-motivated junior postdoctoral fellows with molecular biology training
to characterize the molecular pathogenesis of mouse models of the human leukodystrophy,
Pelizaeus Merzbacher disease. This project is an expansion of a well-developed program, and
several significant advances have already been published, including:

Gow A & Lazzarini RA (1996) Nat. Genet.
Gow A et al (1998) J. Cell Biol.
Stecca B et al (2000) J. Neurosci.
Southwood CM & Gow A (2001) Microsc. Res. Tech.

Ideally, applicants should have experience in any of several fields: the cellular biology of
mammalian cells, in particular intracellular protein trafficking; serine/threonine kinase signaling;
apoptosis; microarray analysis, or; knockout and transgenic mouse techniques. In addition
to vigorously pursuing a research project, successful applicants will manage mouse colonies
and will have the opportunity to develop independent research programs in latter years.

2) Molecular Biologist

We are looking for self-motivated junior postdoctoral fellows with molecular biology training
to characterize the molecular properties and functions of claudin family members at
tight junctions in the CNS, testis and inner ear. This project is an expansion of our initial work
with claudin 11 knockout mice:

Gow A et al (1999) Cell
Southwood CM and Gow A (2001) in: Tight Junctions. 2nd Ed.

Ideally, applicants should have experience in any of several fields: the cellular biology of
mammalian cells, in particular intercellular junctions, or; knockout and transgenic mouse
techniques. In addition to vigorously pursuing a research project, successful applicants will
manage mouse colonies and will have the opportunity to develop independent research programs
in latter years.
