Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position in our lab
to study the molecular basis of vulva formation in C. elegans.  Currently
we are extending the analysis of cell migrations and cell fusions during
morphogenesis of the vulva.  We will study the architecture of the vulva
in existing mutants to examine the involvement of cell fusions and
migrations during the construction of the vulva.  More details are
available on request.

We are looking for applicants with a strong interest in developmental
mechanisms preferably with training in genetics, cell or molecular
biology.  The position is initially available for two years but can be
