Bedzhov and M. Zernicka-Goetz, Cell, 2014). The successful candidate will investigate the mechanisms of self-organization of the pluripotent epiblast in the context of the developing embryo and in vitro using embryonic stem cell as a model system.
We are looking for a talented and highly motivated post-doctoral scientist. Previous research background in embryonic stem cells pluripotency or epithelial polarity, experience in in vitro systems of epithelial morphogenesis, gene-targeting and genome-wide data analysis will be an advantage.
