A postdoctoral position is available in our lab to study cell cycle regulation and germ/soma interactions affecting the C. elegans oocyte. We have recently taken a cell biological and genetic approach to understanding how the oocyte controls its cell cycle for maturation and how it communicates with the myoepithelial somatic gonad to be expelled at ovulation. We have defined the events involved by time lapse microscopy and isolated a class of mutants which are defective in ovulation. Current projects include: isolation of mutants defective in oocyte cell cycle regulation (maturation), and molecular characterization of new mutants. More details available upon request. We are looking for an individual with genetic, cell biological, or molecular training and a strong interest in the cell cycle or cell-cell communication. Support can be provided by an existing grant and the position is available immediately.
