Postdoctoral Fellow — Endocrine controls of adult neural crest stem cells

Posted by on December 11th, 2018

A position for a postdoctoral fellow is available in the lab of Dr. David Parichy at University of Virginia to study functions of thyroid hormone and other circulating factors during the development and homeostasis of adult neural crest stem cells and their derivatives in zebrafish.    Major interests lie in understanding how specific hormones drive disparate[…]

Postdoctoral position – Quantitative developmental biology – Zebrafish

Posted by on December 11th, 2018

We are seeking outstanding postdoctoral candidates to join the Campas lab at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Our group uses interdisciplinary and quantitative approaches to study the formation of tissues and organs during zebrafish embryonic development. We are interested in connecting the molecular and cellular process that orchestrate embryogenesis with the physical/mechanical processes that[…]

PhD Position / Cell Biology of Organ Regeneration

Posted by on December 10th, 2018

We are seeking independent, passionate and creative students to join the López-Schier group at the Helmholtz Zentrum in Neuherberg/Munich, Germany. The position is to work, at either experimental or theoretical level, on the cellular, genetic and mechanical aspects of multicellular self-organisation and their relevance to sensory-organ morphogenesis and regeneration.

MSc/PhD and postdoc positions available in the Zaidel-Bar lab, Tel-Aviv University

Posted by on November 27th, 2018

MSc/PhD and postdoc positions available in the Zaidel-Bar Cellular and Tissue Morphogenesis Lab. We study the regulation of the cytoskeleton from single proteins to the entire organism and system levels, using multiple approaches (including bioinformatics, genetics, biochemistry and live imaging) to understand how cells and tissues change shape, move, sense, and generate forces (for more[…]

Postdoctoral position in bioinformatics/developmental neurobiology

Posted by on November 21st, 2018

A postdoctoral position is available for an initial period of 2 years at the “Stem Cell and Brain Research Institute” ( in the lab of Dr. Olivier Raineteau.

PhD and Postdoctoral positions in Developmental Neurobiology, ULB Neuroscience Institute and UMons, Belgium

Posted by on November 20th, 2018

We are seeking highly motivated candidates to join us on a project beginning in 2019 on the molecular mechanisms of sensory neurogenesis. We study in particular the nociceptors, the specialized peripheral neurons that detect painful stimuli. We aim to understand the role and mechanism of action of the Prdm12 gene. Prdm12 encodes an evolutionarily conserved[…]
