Postdoctoral Research Associate position at UCL

Posted by on June 25th, 2012

Applications are invited to join a research group  investigating the developmental mechanisms, genetics and cell biology underlying neural tube closure and neural tube defects (NTDs). Recent research has identified key roles for Grainyhead-like transcription factors in regulating neural tube closure. The purpose of the current project is to further define the role of Grhl genes[…]
