About: pujades

Biography:
I am a scientist interested in how cells acquire their fate during embryonic development. My main focus is the development of the Central Nervous System, and how cell fate specification and morphogenesis coordinate to give rise the final structures.

POSTDOCTORAL POSITION AT UNIVERSITAT POMPEU FABRA (BARCELONA, SPAIN): BUILDING THE DIGITAL Z-HINDBRAIN ATLAS

Posted by on April 19th, 2017

Our aim is to build an expandable open-access atlas over brain morphogenesis – the digital Z-hindbrain atlas – containing data from gene expression, transcriptional dynamics, clonal growth, cell lineages, and definitions of anatomical regions. This open-access IT resource will help us to expand our knowledge on how the brain is functionally organized, and therefore for[…]

PhD STUDENT POSITION IN DEVELOPMENTAL BIOLOGY AT THE DEPARTMENT OF EXPERIMENTAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES, UNIVERSITAT POMPEU FABRA (BARCELONA, SPAIN)

Posted by on February 12th, 2016

We are interested in understanding how tissue compartmentalization and cell fate decisions take place in the Central Nervous System during embryonic development. We use the developing brain of the vertebrates – the hindbrain – as model to analyze the molecular mechanisms of tissue subdivision and cell differentiation. The project will focus in understanding how morphogenesis[…]

Postdoctoral position in Developmental Neurobiology in Barcelona

Posted by on November 24th, 2015

We are seeking for highly motivated and enthusiastic candidates interested in understanding how tissue compartmentalization and cell fate decisions take place in the Central Nervous System during embryonic development. The project will focus in understanding the genetic mechanisms involved in the control of the cellular fate using zebrafish embryos as a model. Experience on molecular[…]
