A postdoctoral position is available to work on an MRC funded pilot
project to develop and implement methods for large-scale systematic
functional analysis of the C. elegans genome, taking advantage of the
imminent completion of the genomic sequence.  Methodological
development to produce gene knockouts by genomic deletion will involve
collaboration with the laboratory of Dr. Ronald Plasterk (Amsterdam).
Applicability of antisense methods will also be investigated.

Relevant experience in C. elegans biology is preferable.  Funding is
available for two years from April 1998 in the first instance.

To apply, please send C.V. and names and addresses of two referees to
Ms. Mary Morgan, The Sanger Centre, Wellcome Trust Genome Campus,
Hinxton, Cambs CB10 1SA, or, for further information, contact Alan
Coulson (Tel: 01223-834244; email alan@sanger.ac.uk).
