EMBL GROUP LEADER POSITION – Developmental Biology Unit

Posted by on September 5th, 2018

The Developmental Biology Unit seeks to understand the general principles and mechanisms underlying the development of multicellular organisms. Researchers in the unit combine the power of genetic model organisms with quantitative imaging and -omics technologies, synthetic biology, reduced (in vitro) systems and theoretical modelling, to create a cross-cutting approach to modern developmental biology. Research in[…]

Postdoctoral Position in Cell Adhesion and Cardiovascular Development Lab

Posted by on August 15th, 2018

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Sophie Astrof at Thomas Jefferson University to study roles of cell-extracellular matrix (ECM) interactions in cardiovascular development and congenital heart disease. We have recently discovered that progenitors within the second heart field (SHF) give rise to endothelial cells composing pharyngeal arch arteries (Dev Biol 421:102–111,[…]
