A postdoctoral position is available to join a new project that seeks to
identify the neurons controlling the infective process in Haemonchus
contortus parasitism.  H. contortus is an economically important
nematode of domestic livestock and a model species representing the
trichostrongyle nematodes, a group of major importance in veterinary
medicine.  An interest in nematode development and neurobiology is
desirable, as is experience in electron microscopy.  Candidates should
send a curriculum vitae and request three letters of recommendation to
be sent to:
