Postdoctoral fellowship in Applied Developmental Immunology

Posted by on June 22nd, 2018

The Maehr lab ( is looking for a team member in the area of developmental immunology and human pluripotent stem cell-based disease models. Envisioned projects will utilize pluripotent stem cell differentiation approaches, together with assays of thymus and T cell development, to decipher the molecular underpinnings of human immune syndromes such as thymus dysfunction-based autoimmunity[…]

Unraveling tissue interactions coordinating neuromuscular morphogenesis: a journey through serendipity

Posted by on June 20th, 2018

An emerging trend in developmental biology focuses on the role of cell adhesion in modulating tissue morphogenesis. Spectacular advances have shed light on how modulation of adhesion between equivalent cells orchestrates the acquisition of forms. However, how interactions at complex interfaces between distinct neighboring cell types influence tissue growth remains to be elucidated. In a[…]

Postdoctoral Positions — Neural crest stem cells, pigment pattern, adult form

Posted by on June 1st, 2018

Postdoctoral positions are available in the Parichy lab at University of Virginia. The lab studies development using zebrafish and related species. Current emphases include hormonal control over post-embryonic neural crest stem cells, plasticity in cell state, evolution of novel cell types, and mechanisms of pattern formation and cell–cell communication within zebrafish and across Danio species.[…]

Student and PostDoc events at the BSDB Spring meeting 2018

Posted by on May 31st, 2018

At the 2018 Spring Meeting in Warwick, the PhD and PostDoc representatives organises a series of events for young researchers. These ranged from asking questions such as “What is the secret to success?” through to some crafty synthetic biology and ending with the award of the 2018 BSDB writing competition. A huge thanks to Michelle Ware and Alexandra[…]

Facility Technician at Sars Centre in Bergen, Norway

Posted by on May 24th, 2018

A 60% permanent position as Facility Technician is available from July in the newly established research group of Dr. Pawel Burkhardt at the Sars Centre. Work in the group focuses on the evolutionary origin of synapses and neurons, using choanoflagellates, sponges and ctenophores as main model systems. The Sars Centre belongs to the University of Bergen, and[…]

Lymphoblastoid Cell Lines: The Next Frontier of ALS Research

Posted by on May 4th, 2018

This post highlights the approach and finding of a new research article published by Disease Models and Mechanisms (DMM). This feature is written by Lacey Kennedy as apart of a seminar at The University of Alabama (taught by DMM Editorial Board member, Prof. Guy Caldwell) on current topics related to use of animal and cellular model[…]

postdoctoral fellow position: Hedgehog control of neuronal activity.

Posted by on April 19th, 2018

We invite applications for a postdoctoral position to join a multidisciplinary project in the Alenius group at Umeå university. The project is based on our recent discovery that Hedgehog control neuronal activity in both Drosophila and mouse1. 2  The approach is to combine Drosophila genetics, biochemistry with imaging in order to investigate the fundamental mechanisms that control[…]
