POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN CELL and DEVELOPMENTAL BIOLOGY

Posted by on January 13th, 2011

Post doctoral position available to study the neural crest gene regulatory network (NC-GRN) in Xenopus and zebrafish. Neural crest cells are stem cell-like progenitors that migrate extensively and are essential to the establishment of the vertebrate body plan. Misregulation of components of the NC-GRN underlies numerous human diseases and congenital disorders. Studies involve post-translational regulation[…]

PhD studentship: Analysis of progenitor cell differentiation programmes

Posted by on January 12th, 2011

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship investigating cell differentiation during development (closing date 14th January, 2011). Cell differentiation programmes are central to the production of specialised tissues during development. Moreover, in-depth understanding of cell differentiation is essential for many applications, including stem cell technology and tissue repair. We study the programme that governs muscle[…]
