RESEARCH TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES
Postdoctoral fellowships in Drosophila or Ascidian neurobiology are sometimes available to work with Dr. Ian Meinertzhagen, funded by NIH, NSERC, or the lab's other grant sources. Our laboratory is investigating either
We recruit recent Ph.D. graduates in the biological sciences, entomology, physiology or neuroscience.
Previous experience in one or other methods currently in use, or in a method which complements these, would be an asset, but training is also available for all the experimental techniques in use. A commitment to hard work and discovery are the prime requirements.
Applicants for postdoctoral training can be of any nationality. Applicants for employment
as a Research Associate must have the right to work in Canada

1) the functional anatomy, development or plasticity of the Drosophila visual system,
especially those associated with synapses and synaptic circuits, using a variety of
techniques, including serial-section EM, immunocytochemistry at confocal and EM levels,
tissue culture, and HPLC; or
2) the functional anatomy of the CNS in the ascidian larva, using similar methods.
Training and Employment
Our lab is always eager to recruit good candidate graduate students and postdoctoral
fellows. We have an active lab, with a good record of successful training and a friendly,
international laboratory characterized by an informal, but hard-working environment.
