Post-doctoral scientists – stem cell niche biology (skin), RIKEN CDB, Japan

Posted by on July 31st, 2012

We are seeking to appoint post-doctoral researchers to study microenvironmental regulation of stem cells in mammalian skin. The aim of our group is to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms underlying the ways in which tissue microenvironments are regionally specialized, and how the specialized microenvironments instruct cellar behaviour and communication, and organ formation. We[…]
