Marie Curie PhD fellowship / Molecular profiling of cells during regeneration: cell diversity and evolution across phyla

Posted by on December 5th, 2017

A 3-year PhD fellowship in evolutionary developmental biology and genomics is available in the lab of Michalis Averof, at the Institut de Génomique Fonctionnelle de Lyon (IGFL) in France. The fellowship is funded by the Marie Curie ITN programme EvoCELL. Some animals have the ability to regenerate parts of their body (limbs, tail, internal organs)[…]

Senior Laboratory Research Scientist at the Crick Institute

Posted by on November 22nd, 2017

We are looking for a highly motivated Senior Laboratory Scientist to join the quantitative cell biology laboratory headed by Dr Silvia Santos. The lab is a new addition to The Francis Crick Institute in London and focuses on understanding control principles in cell decision-making. Current areas of research include understanding control of cell division and[…]

Postdoctoral Position to study roles of extracellular microenvironment in cardiovascular development

Posted by on November 9th, 2017

The composition of extracellular microenvironment is dynamically regulated in time and space during embryonic development, and our lab discovered that cell-type specific expression of the extracellular matrix protein fibronectin is essential for mammalian embryogenesis. Furthermore, we found that fibronectin regulates distinct morphogenetic processes in cell type-specific manner, and functions both in cell-autonomous and non cell-autonomous[…]

Musings of an accidental scientist

Posted by on November 6th, 2017

As we sat together at a farewell dinner after I graduated from Princeton University, my advisers asked me, “What got you into science?”. Although a simple, straightforward question on the surface, it sent me down memory lane and I found it incredibly difficult to provide a concise, one-line response. I grew up in a rural[…]
