EvoCELL Research Fellow (PhD candidate) in Mesoderm Evolution: Formation of gonads and germ line during early embryogenesis

Posted by on February 8th, 2018

There is a vacancy for a PhD position (Early Stage Researcher) for a fixed term of 3 years at the Sars International Centre for Marine Molecular Biology affiliated with the project “Mesoderm Evolution”. This PhD position is subject to funding by the MSC Innovative Training Network “EvoCELL”. EvoCELL is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network aiming at studying the evolution of cell-types and tissues in a diverse array of vertebrates and invertebrates.

Why more is better in comparative developmental biology…
