Postdoctoral position: Formation and Roles of Drosophila Axonal Endoplasmic Reticulum

Posted by on October 6th, 2015

A vacancy for a postdoctoral research associate is available for 2 years from 1 Jan 2016 in the first instance. Axonal endoplasmic reticulum is a poorly characterised compartment that is probably ubiquitous in axons, may mediate local and long-distance communication, and probably underlies a number of neurodegenerative mechanisms. We have developed ways to visualise axonal ER in[…]
