Postdoctoral positions in quantitative stem cell biology

Posted by on August 4th, 2017

Multiple postdoctoral positions are available in the field of quantitative stem cell biology at the Warmflash lab at Rice University. Our lab uses human embryonic stem cells to model early embryonic development with a particular focus on understanding the mechanisms of spatial patterning and morphogen signaling dynamics. Our work combines quantitative experimentation with data analysis[…]

Research Technician Position, Stem Cell Modeling of Development & Disease, Gouti Lab, MDC-Berlin

Posted by on August 4th, 2017

A Research Technician position is available in the research group of Mina Gouti at the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine in Berlin. The group is using human and mouse pluripotent stem cells to study the development and disease of neuromuscular system. Further information about research in the lab can be found at:  […]

Research assistant in Development Biology, Sheffield University

Posted by on August 3rd, 2017

A Wellcome Trust/Royal Society funded Research Assistant position is available in Dr Kyra Campbell’s research group. This is a fantastic opportunity to join the Campbell group, who are focused on identifying the molecular mechanisms underlying epithelial cell plasticity during development and disease. We study how this fundamental property is orchestrated during morphogenesis of the Drosophila[…]

Postdoctoral position, Autophagy at Albert Einstein

Posted by on August 2nd, 2017

A postdoctoral position for an outstanding and highly motivated candidate is available in the Jenny lab in the Department of Developmental and Molecular Biology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. One of our laboratory’s focuses is the characterization of the regulation and physiological roles of Endosomal Microautophagy (eMI). eMI is a form of autophagy[…]

Postdoc Position in Developmental Vascular Genetics

Posted by on August 1st, 2017

Postdoc position available to study the development of blood vessels in the zebrafish model. We are interested in understanding the interactions of the endothelial lining of blood vessels with mural cells in the process of vascular stabilization. We are located in the Alberta Children’s Hospital Research Institute at the University of Calgary, which has a vibrant, collaborative group[…]

Postdoc in gene delivery at King’s College

Posted by on August 1st, 2017

We are seeking a highly motivated and talented postdoctoral researcher initially for 1 year, starting 1 October 2017, to develop nanomaterial-based gene delivery strategies for the topical treatment of genetic skin conditions. We are looking for someone with experience in gene transfer and cell biology. Further experience with optical microscopy and drug delivery would be advantageous.  […]

Post Doctoral / Research Associate Position in Developmental Genomics

Posted by on July 28th, 2017

Post doctoral and/or Research Associate 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 diseases[…]

PhD position in the mechanics of neuronal development in zebrafish – Paris

Posted by on July 25th, 2017

A 3-year funded PhD position is available at the Institut de Biologie Paris Seine to investigate the role of mechanical forces in the construction of a neuronal circuit in vivo. During neuronal circuit formation, neurons move towards their final location while growing axons towards their target. While the biochemical guidance cues involved in neuronal migration[…]

Postdoctoral position – Yale University

Posted by on July 24th, 2017

A Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available in the Hoffman Lab at Yale University ( We use zebrafish as a translational tool to investigate the function of genes that are strongly associated with autism spectrum disorders (Hoffman et al. 2016 Neuron). Specifically, we use CRISPR-generated zebrafish mutants to study how disruption of autism risk genes affects the developing brain[…]
