Postdoctoral positions in quantitative stem cell biology

Posted by on August 4th, 2017

Multiple postdoctoral positions are available in the field of quantitative stem cell biology at the Warmflash lab at Rice University. Our lab uses human embryonic stem cells to model early embryonic development with a particular focus on understanding the mechanisms of spatial patterning and morphogen signaling dynamics. Our work combines quantitative experimentation with data analysis[…]

Postdoctoral postions in Systems Stem Cell Biology

Posted by on September 24th, 2014

Postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Systems Stem Cell and Developmental Biology (PI Aryeh Warmflash) at Rice University (Lab website) . We use human embryonic stem cells as a model for studying cellular communication, self-organization, and spatial patterning during embryonic development. The lab utilizes a combination of quantitative experimental techniques and mathematical modeling to address fundamental[…]

Towards a synthetic embryo

Posted by on September 24th, 2014

Waddington, whose writings on the epigenetic landscape continue to influence developmental biology to this day, called the developing embryo “the most intriguing object that nature has to offer”(Waddington, 1966). The mechanisms of pattern formation and morphogenesis have fascinated biologists for centuries. One question that is difficult to answer is what are the minimal requirements for[…]
