The Miguel‐Aliaga lab is using Drosophila melanogaster to investigate the significance of brain‐gut interactions in the regulation of food intake, nutrient storage and metabolic homeostasis. We are a young and productive lab, well funded by ERC, EMBO, Wellcome Trust and BBSRC grants.
We will be based in a new research building in Imperial College’s Hammersmith campus in West London, and will be part of the core‐funded MRC Clinical Sciences Centre (http://www.csc.mrc.ac.uk/).
We are looking for:
3 highly motivated and well adjusted postdocs with an open and organized mind, capable both of thinking outside the box and paying attention to detail. You should have a relevant PhD or be in the final stages of completing one. Training in cell biology, metabolism, neurobiology and/or Drosophila genetics would be appreciated, but it is not essential. Start date is negotiable.
1 meticulous and organized full‐time technician who will make our fly media and look after our flies and fly facility. Preferred start date: October/November 2012.
