Biology and Disease Mechanisms of Drosophila Axonal Endoplasmic Reticulum

Posted by on October 9th, 2018

We have a vacancy for a postdoctoral research associate, funded by a BBSRC grant, to work on the roles of spastic paraplegia gene products in formation of axonal ER, and identification of new genes and cellular processes involved in this. For some background on the project, see: https://elifesciences.org/articles/23882. Applicants should have a PhD in a biological[…]

Postdoctoral position: Formation and Roles of Drosophila Axonal Endoplasmic Reticulum

Posted by on October 6th, 2015

A vacancy for a postdoctoral research associate is available for 2 years from 1 Jan 2016 in the first instance. Axonal endoplasmic reticulum is a poorly characterised compartment that is probably ubiquitous in axons, may mediate local and long-distance communication, and probably underlies a number of neurodegenerative mechanisms. We have developed ways to visualise axonal ER in[…]
