Two postdoc positions (1x Bioinformatics and 1x wet lab) in single cell biology of cell fate commitment at University College London

Posted by on September 19th, 2017

Two postdoc positions (1x bioinformatics and 1x wet lab) are available at University College London. Our lab studies how cell fate choice and proportioning is robust and reproducible, despite the fact that extensive cell-cell variation is generated by noise and stochasticity, which can cause heterogeneous gene network activity. Therefore to understand how cell fate choice and patterning are[…]
