Research Fellow Position in Stem Cell Biology on Heart Development in Aberdeen

Posted by on February 25th, 2013

Research Fellow in Stem Cell Biology WNT signalling in heart development and regeneration An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Research Fellow at the University of Aberdeen. This project focuses on how WNT/β-catenin signalling regulates heart development and cardiomyocyte differentiation. We aim to dissect context-specific roles of WNT signalling at different stages of development and[…]

O-GlcNAc signalling during embryonic stem cell differentiation My lab is studying the signalling mechanisms governing the onset of differentiation of pluripotent embryonic stem (ES) cells. Work from this and other labs (e.g. 1, 2) has revealed a critical role for autocrine FGF signalling and consequent sustained phosphorylation of the kinase Erk during the differentiation process.[…]

PhD position in the UK for a Developmental Geneticist

Posted by on January 16th, 2013

PhD project title: Non-genetic mechanisms of inheritance influenced by the maternal environment Project description: In the last few decades, it has been becoming increasingly clear that organisms can express phenotypes that are inherited in a non-Mendelian fashion. Studies in humans, for example, show that grandfathers who experienced dramatic diet fluctuations as children influenced the incidence[…]
