Postdoc position on polyunsaturated fatty acids signaling in fertilization

A Postdoctoral position is available to study [b]polyunsaturated fatty acids and
prostaglandins in C. elegans fertilization and development.[/b] We use C. elegans as a
simple in vivo model for investigating cell communication mechanisms. The focus is on
two important classes of hormones, protein hormones called MSPs and lipid hormones
called prostaglandins. [b]Our major goals are to discover biological roles of these hormones
and to elucidate their molecular mechanisms of action. [/b]Please see [b][/b]
for more information.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. and should have expertise in molecular biology, genetics,
or biochemistry. Experience with C. elegans is desirable, but not necessary.

The University of Alabama at Birmingham is a terrific place to conduct research, with
great colleagues, a friendly environment, and state of the art resources. Renovations to
the lab have just been completed. Birmingham is a charming and affordable city located
in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains.
