One-day Symposium on Developmental Bioelectricity in Boston, MA – July 26th, 2019

Posted by on April 16th, 2019

A fundamental question in biology is how cells communicate to fashion and repair complex biological structures and tissues.  It is well established that cells communicate through biochemical cues.  However, compelling evidence suggests that cells and tissues of all types use ion fluxes to communicate electrically as well.  In addition, it is now clear that this[…]

Postdoctoral opportunity at Columbia University in New York City

Posted by on April 15th, 2019

Postdoctoral Opportunity: Research in Development and Cancer We are looking for highly motivated individuals to join us in research funded by the National Institutes of Health to identify and characterize new molecular targets relevant to tumor formation and to tissue homeostasis during organ development. The projects combine genetics, functional genomics and biochemical analysis of cell[…]

Drosophila developmental neurobiology postdoctoral fellow (UCL)

Posted by on April 5th, 2019

We are looking for an intellectually curious and motivated postdoctoral fellow to join in the fun exploring how glia regulate neurogenesis and neuronal fate-specification. Our approaches are interdisciplinary and involve genetics, live imaging, computational modelling, single cell RNA sequencing, etc. Available projects include: (1) Understanding how signals from glia impart unique neuronal identities (a follow[…]

Competitive recruitment for doctoral contracts 2019 – IBDM, Marseille, France

Posted by on March 28th, 2019

2019 PhD Projects @ IBDM :    Investigating basic principles of tumor hierarchy in Drosophila Tumors are often heterogeneous, composed by different cell types that exhibit a hierarchical organization reminiscent to developing tissues. At the top of the hierarchy lie Cancer Stem Cells (CSCs) that have the ability to undergo unlimited self-renewal, to propagate tumor[…]

Postdoctoral position: Pluripotent stem cell differentiation and Regenerative Medicine

Posted by on March 28th, 2019

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Christopher Sturgeon, at the Washington University School of Medicine, in St. Louis, MO.  We have developed novel human pluripotent stem cell (hPSC) directed differentiation strategies that generate extra-embryonic and intra-embryonic like hematopoietic progenitors. Several research projects are available, all focused on the translational potential of[…]
