Postdoctoral position: Timing vertebrate limb development

Posted by on April 24th, 2018

A Wellcome Trust funded Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available in the lab of Dr. Matt Towers at the University of Sheffield, UK, to work on vertebrate limb development. How embryonic development is timed and scaled remains enigmatic. Understanding the underlying mechanisms remains a central challenge in biology, since these mechanisms coordinate the growth and[…]

PhD position: Chromosome Dynamics During Spermatogenesis in Drosophila, University of Zurich, Switzerland

Posted by on April 19th, 2018

We seek candidates interested in completing a PhD thesis within the framework of a research project (46 months) funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF). Chromosome reorganization during spermatogenesis is dramatic. Beyond meiosis, it includes chromosome compaction into an elongated sperm nucleus which is accompanied by an almost complete exchange of histones with sperm[…]

postdoctoral fellow position: Hedgehog control of neuronal activity.

Posted by on April 19th, 2018

We invite applications for a postdoctoral position to join a multidisciplinary project in the Alenius group at Umeå university. The project is based on our recent discovery that Hedgehog control neuronal activity in both Drosophila and mouse1. 2  The approach is to combine Drosophila genetics, biochemistry with imaging in order to investigate the fundamental mechanisms that control[…]
