Postdoc to investigate the evolution and development of teeth in reptiles.

Posted by on November 10th, 2017

A position at the Postdoctoral level is available December 1, 2017 to investigate the evolution and development of teeth in reptiles.  Our lab has been studying the processes of tooth development and tooth replacement in snake and lizard embryos (see review Richman and Handrigan, Genesis, 2011; Handrigan et al., 2010, Dev Biol, vol. 348, 130-141).[…]

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[…]
