A postdoctoral research associate post is available to start immediately on a Wellcome Trust-funded project, joint with Leeds University (Hope Lab), to investigate, using recombineering-generated (Dolphin & Hope [2006] NAR 34:e72), fosmid-derived, multiply-labeled fluorescent protein fusion reporter constructs, the presence and extent of autonomously-acting regulatory elements within C. elegans operons. The project includes a core element designed to develop large-scale, high-throughput, automated reporter production to which both postdoctoral associates (London & Leeds) will contribute.
