Dear List Members, I have been asked to send the following job announcements to the list. Please do not reply to me. Brian Moore Genetics of deafness: Team 27, led by Karen P Steel Recruitment I am currently re-establishing my research team at the Sanger Institute. In addition to specific hypothesis-driven projects building upon our previous observations in mouse mutants with hearing and balance defects, we plan to undertake a large-scale screen to discover new genes involved in development, function, and long-term maintenance of the auditory system. Other systems, such as vision, may be studied as appropriate to specific mutants. An indication of the range of approaches we use can be obtained from the publications listed on the Team 27 web pages. Newly-refurbished laboratory space will be provided by the Sanger Institute, and a large mouse facility is under construction. Furthermore, we benefit from the considerable expertise of our colleagues at the Sanger Institute in genomic analysis. I anticipate building up my team to around 15 researchers. These posts are funded by the MRC, the Wellcome Trust and Defeating Deafness, and are available as soon as suitable candidates can be found. Over the next year I plan to appoint to the following posts: Senior microscopist Senior auditory physiologist Two further physiologists Postdoctoral Research Associates Graduate Research Assistants Two animal technicians, one a senior post PhD students The posts listed are flexible ranging from three year to open-ended contracts; salary and tenure will depend upon skills and previous experience. Applications are welcomed from energetic individuals with a commitment to high-quality science in the context of developing high-throughput approaches to data-gathering. Informal enquires may be addressed to Karen P Steel at kps(at) The deadline for applications for the first round of interviews will be 23rd January 2004, but expressions of interest in later rounds are welcomed.
