Postdoctoral position in bioinformatics/developmental neurobiology

Posted by on November 21st, 2018

A postdoctoral position is available for an initial period of 2 years at the “Stem Cell and Brain Research Institute” (www.sbri.fr) in the lab of Dr. Olivier Raineteau. The project follows two recent studies from the team demonstrating transcriptional heterogeneity of postnatal neural progenitors (Donega et al., Cell Report, 2018), and their amenability to pharmacological[…]

Call for new preLighters

Posted by on November 6th, 2018

preLights, The Company of Biologist’s new preprint highlighting service, has now been running for more than eight months. At the heart of preLights is the community of early-career researchers who select and highlight interesting preprints in various fields. As the service is building momentum, we are ready to grow our team of preLighters and are[…]

Multiple Postdoc and Research Tech positions available in Enteric Neurobiology

Posted by on October 31st, 2018

Multiple funded positions for Post-Doctoral Fellows and Research Technicians are available to study Enteric Neurobiology at Johns Hopkins University. Together, the K-Lab and the Pasricha Lab study developmental and adult neurobiology of the Enteric Nervous System.

DEVELOPMENTAL NEUROSCIENCE POSTDOCTORAL POSITION

Posted by on October 18th, 2018

A postdoctoral position is available immediately for a highly-motivated individual interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms of brain development. The individual will join Dr. Martin Riccomagno’s laboratory at the University of California, Riverside (http://www.riccomagnolab.org). Our laboratory uses a combination of molecular biology, histology, tissue culture, mouse transgenesis, and cutting-edge imaging approaches to investigate the developmental mechanisms[…]

Biology and Disease Mechanisms of Drosophila Axonal Endoplasmic Reticulum

Posted by on October 9th, 2018

We have a vacancy for a postdoctoral research associate, funded by a BBSRC grant, to work on the roles of spastic paraplegia gene products in formation of axonal ER, and identification of new genes and cellular processes involved in this. For some background on the project, see: https://elifesciences.org/articles/23882. Applicants should have a PhD in a biological[…]

A study using Drosophila sheds light on the metastatic behaviour of human tumours

Posted by on September 26th, 2018

Most solid tumours with metastatic potential show a high degree of chromosomal instability. A study published in the journal Developmental Cell demonstrates that chromosomal instability itself promotes invasive behaviour. The researchers identify the oncogene Fos and the tumour suppressor Capicua as necessary molecular elements mediating this invasive behaviour. Barcelona, 26 September 2018.- Metastatic tumours are[…]

Tenure track faculty position in Neurobiology-University of South Carolina

Posted by on September 10th, 2018

The Department of Biological Sciences at the University of South Carolina invites applications for a tenure-track position as an Assistant Professor with a research program in neurobiology. The successful candidate will be expected to establish an independent, extramurally funded research program focusing on cell-cell communication in neural development and/or disease. We are especially interested in[…]

DUCTS IN THE PANCREAS FORM SIMILAR TO RIVER BEDS

Posted by on August 23rd, 2018

When people digest food, the flow of fluids and digestive enzymes to the gut is critical. Until recently, researchers had marvelled at the incredibly complex system of ducts that transports a stream of enzymes and mucus from the pancreas to the gut. Astonishingly, a research project led by Professor Grapin-Botton has revealed that the ducts[…]
