Postdoc position – Understanding gene network heterogeneity in development

Posted by on August 17th, 2016

We are seeking an enthusiastic and outstanding postdoctoral researcher to join a multidisciplinary team led by Prof. Chris Thompson at the University of Manchester. You will use single cell RNA sequencing to identify groups of heterogeneously expressed genes within normal populations of cells, and study the role of these genes in cell fate choice. Cell[…]

Post-doc position (mouse embryonic morphogenesis)

Posted by on August 15th, 2016

A postdoctoral researcher position is available in the Plageman lab in the College of Optometry at the Ohio State University to elucidate mechanisms of vertebrate epithelial morphogenesis.   The project will utilize the invaginating lens placode of the mouse as a model in combination with live-fluorescent microscopy.  Candidates should have a Ph.D., a strong publication record[…]

Postdoc in Bioinformatics

Posted by on August 12th, 2016

A postdoctoral position is available for a bioinformatician to investigate the mechanisms by which microRNAs, transcription factors and developmental signals control skeletal and cardiac muscle differentiation. The post is based in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, in the group headed by Professor Andrea Münsterberg. Their research aims to[…]

Two PhD positions in Regulatory Evolution, Tschopp group, University of Basel, Switzerland

Posted by on August 1st, 2016

The Laboratory of Regulatory Evolution (Tschopp group) at the Zoological Institute, University of Basel, is hiring for two fully funded PhD positions. Our research interests focus on two main questions: 1. How is phenotypic diversity generated during vertebrate embryogenesis? And 2. how can developmental processes be modified to drive morphological evolution? We are particularly interested[…]
