Babraham Institute


A five-year postdoctoral position is available to study genomic imprinting in the mouse. Genomic imprinting, which results in the silencing of one of the two parental alleles of given genes, is an important mechanism in a variety of developmental and physiological processes, and in human disease. We are identifying novel imprinted genes in the mouse in a systematic screen, and this project will examine the function and regulation of newly-identified genes using gene targeting and transgenic approaches. The post will be held in the Laboratory of Developmental Genetics and Imprinting. Candidates should have experience in mouse developmental genetics and gene identification.

The position is available immediately. Informal enquiries may be made to Gavin Kelsey (e-mail gavin.kelsey@bbsrc.ac.uk). The salary will be in the range £19,500 to £23,000 a year, according to qualifications and experience.

Please send a curriculum vitae and the names of three referees to the Personnel Office, Babraham Institute, Babraham, CB2 4AT (e-mail babraham.personnel@bbsrc.ac.uk). A completed application form will also be required. Please quote reference GK/PD/ST. The closing date for applications is 15 January 2001.

The Institute is supported by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council and is an equal opportunities employer.
