PhD position in stem cell biology

Posted by on July 20th, 2016

The Paridaen lab at the European Research Institute for the Biology of Ageing (ERIBA) in Groningen, The Netherlands, is looking for a PhD student on Stem cell biology. Stem cells act in developing and adult organisms to produce the proper number of specialized cells in the body. It is important that stem cells select an[…]

Postdoctoral position in developmental neurobiology

Posted by on July 7th, 2016

A postdoctoral position is available in the Page laboratory in the Department of Neuroscience at The Scripps Research Institute in Jupiter, Florida to investigate mechanisms of neurogenesis & gliogenesis, axon/dendrite growth and synaptic connectivity in the developing mouse cerebral cortex. A major goal of this project is to understand the influence of genetic risk factors for autism[…]

Postdoctoral position in chromatin and epigenetic control of Drosophila development

Posted by on June 30th, 2016

Stockholm University, Sweden, invites applications for one postdoctoral position in the laboratory of Professor Mattias Mannervik at the Department of Molecular Biosciences, The Wenner-Gren Institute ( The position is scheduled to start as soon as possible.   Transcriptional coregulators are proteins that facilitate communication between transcription factors and the basal transcription apparatus, in part by[…]

Post Doctoral Position in Cell and Developmental Biology

Posted by on June 27th, 2016

Post doctoral position available to study the genetic and epigenetic control of stem cell attributes and pluripotency, focusing on the neural crest gene regulatory network (NC-GRN). Neural crest cells are stem cell-like progenitors that migrate extensively and whose genesis was central to the evolution of vertebrates. Misregulation of components of the NC-GRN underlies numerous human[…]

PhD position available at UCL from September 2016 to work on eye development in zebrafish

Posted by on June 27th, 2016

The Fight for Sight charity have provided a three year studentship to Stephen Wilson and Gaia Gestri to support a student to work on the role of the Yap/Taz pathway in the morphogenesis of the eye. The project will use zebrafish as a model and will involve a combination of imaging and molecular genetic approaches[…]

Postdoctoral Training Fellow in Human Embryology and Stem Cell Biology Laboratory

Posted by on June 27th, 2016

CONTEXT   We are seeking a highly motivated and collaborative postdoc in the area of human embryology and stem cell biology to join Dr. Kathy Niakan’s laboratory.   We have identified several transcription factors and components of key signaling pathways that are highly expressed in pluripotent epiblast cells of the developing human embryo. The pluripotent[…]

Posted by on June 24th, 2016

Two HFSP-funded postdoctoral positions (each for a duration of 3 years) are available from 1 December 2016 to study the development, robustness and evolution of QR neuroblast migration in C. elegans and related species, in the laboratories of Hendrik Korswagen at the Hubrecht Institute, The Netherlands and of Marie-Anne Félix at the Ecole Normale Supérieure,[…]

Ph.D. student position: Membrane dynamics during epithelial tube fusion in Drosophila

Posted by on June 21st, 2016

The group of Stefan Luschnig at the Cluster of Excellence “Cells in motion” (CiM) and the Institute of Neurobiology, University of Münster, is recruiting a Ph.D. student to investigate membrane dynamics during epithelial tube fusion in Drosophila. The Ph.D. project is focused on the analysis of intracellular trafficking and cell motility during tubular morphogenesis in[…]
