The Developmental Biology Unit seeks to understand the general principles and mechanisms underlying the development of multicellular organisms. Researchers in the unit combine the power of genetic model organisms with quantitative imaging and -omics technologies, synthetic biology, reduced (in vitro) systems and theoretical modelling, to create a cross-cutting approach to modern developmental biology.
Research in the Developmental Biology Unit is firmly embedded within the overall EMBL environment, with extensive in-house collaborations, access to outstanding graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, and support from cutting-edge facilities, including genomics, transgenesis, metabolomics, mass-spectrometry, and microscopy. EMBL brings together the most talented scientists, empowering them to explore bold new areas of biological inquiry and carry out interdisciplinary research.
We are seeking to recruit outstanding group leaders who aim to establish novel approaches to investigate multicellular development at all scales, from the cellular and tissue, to the whole organism level.
