Towards understanding the quirks of human brain evolution

Posted by on June 28th, 2018

In early June, a group of 30 world-leading experts came together thanks to an invitation by the Company of Biologists to Wiston House (Sussex, UK) to discuss our current understanding about evolutionary and molecular mechanisms that contributed to developing the specific qualities of our human brains. Fortunately, the Company of Biologists offers fully funded participation[…]

Postdoctoral Fellow (Helsinki, Finland)

Posted by on June 28th, 2018

The University of Helsinki is a leading Nordic university with a strong life science research. The Michon research team (http://www.biocenter.helsinki.fi/bi/michon) is located in the Institute of Biotechnology (http://www.biocenter.helsinki.fi/bi/), which is promoting cutting edge research in the biomedical field.

Postdoctoral fellowship in Applied Developmental Immunology

Posted by on June 22nd, 2018

The Maehr lab (http://maehrlab.net/) is looking for a team member in the area of developmental immunology and human pluripotent stem cell-based disease models. Envisioned projects will utilize pluripotent stem cell differentiation approaches, together with assays of thymus and T cell development, to decipher the molecular underpinnings of human immune syndromes such as thymus dysfunction-based autoimmunity[…]

Lessons from the 11th Annual NIH Career Symposium

Posted by on June 12th, 2018

For a Ph.D. holder, the idea that any career can be classified as “alternative” is obsolete. With a smaller percentage of postdocs going on to tenure-track positions every year, universities and research institutions are stepping up efforts to help recent graduates figure out how to put to good use all the specialized training that they[…]

Multiple Postdoctoral Fellow Positions at

Postdoctoral Positions — Neural crest stem cells, pigment pattern, adult form

Posted by on June 1st, 2018

Postdoctoral positions are available in the Parichy lab at University of Virginia. The lab studies development using zebrafish and related species. Current emphases include hormonal control over post-embryonic neural crest stem cells, plasticity in cell state, evolution of novel cell types, and mechanisms of pattern formation and cell–cell communication within zebrafish and across Danio species.[…]

Postdoctoral Position in Cardiovascular Development and Congenital Heart Disease

Posted by on May 25th, 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. Projects in the[…]
