Two fully funded PhD Positions in cell, developmental and systems biology at the Universitätsklinikum Freiburg, Germany

Posted by on July 14th, 2017

Two fully funded PhD Positions in cell, developmental and systems biology  at the Universitätsklinikum Freiburg, Germany The Walentek lab studies the molecular mechanisms of mucociliary development, regeneration and disease. Mucociliary epithelia line the embryonic epidermis as well as the respiratory tract of many animal species, and provide an important first line of defense against pathogens[…]

Postdoc in mammalian evolution and development, Princeton University

Posted by on July 10th, 2017

A Postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory led by Ricardo Mallarino, Department of Molecular Biology, Princeton University ( The lab focuses on uncovering the genetic and developmental mechanisms by which form and structure are generated during vertebrate embryogenesis. We combine the study of emerging and traditional model organisms to explore questions relating to patterning[…]
