Postdoctoral Position in Pluripotency, Signaling and Epigenetics, Washington University School of Medicine

Posted by on July 13th, 2018

A postdoctoral position is available in the lab of Thorold Theunissen at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri, USA (theunissenlab.wustl.edu). Our research program is dedicated to exploring the molecular regulation of pluripotent stem cells and their applications in regenerative medicine. We have developed methods for inducing and maintaining human embryonic stem cells[…]

Editorial: Advocating developmental biology

Posted by on June 27th, 2018

This editorial by Aidan Maartens, Andreas Prokop, Katherine Brown and Olivier Pourquié originally appeared in Development   Developmental biology is a discipline with a long and rich history, a vibrant and diverse present, and a future of tremendous potential. The field has had enormous impact beyond its own boundaries, for example providing many key concepts for medical research and[…]

PhD in nerve/tumor interactions and nervous system development

Posted by on June 18th, 2018

Applications are invited from highly motivated individuals dedicated to peruse a PhD and who are interested in nerve/tumour interactions and nervous system development.    PROJECT DESCRIPTION During tumour progression nerves and tumours interact resulting in tumour cells using nerves as a metastatic route out of the organ, through a process called perineural invasion (PNI). While this[…]

Call for papers: Development at the single cell level

Posted by on June 14th, 2018

Development is pleased to welcome submissions for an upcoming special issue on ‘Development at the single cell level’. This special issue aims to showcase the best research in stem cell and developmental biology, building on the rapidly evolving tools of single cell analysis. The issue will be guest-edited by Allon Klein and Barbara Treutlein, working alongside our team of[…]

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.[…]

From stem cells to human development – early bird deadline approaching!

Posted by on May 30th, 2018

In September, Development is hosting the third of its highly successful series of meetings focusing on human developmental biology. Held in the Wotton House estate near Dorking in Surrey and organised by Paola Arlotta, Ali Brivanlou, Olivier Pourquié and Jason Spence, the meeting will cover the latest developments and future prospects for this rapidly evolving field.     The early[…]

From basic questions to exciting findings

Posted by on May 21st, 2018

In this post we report the backstories behind our recently published paper. It was an enjoyable research adventure driven by discussions, readings, exciting experiments and unexpected discoveries. As a result, we described a novel molecular mechanism underpinning stem cell and progenitor maintenance during development. Here is the sequence of the main events that inspired us[…]

Stressed out: Mechanisms of how C. elegans copes with unfavorable environments

Posted by on April 19th, 2018

Sarah E. Hall Department of Biology, Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY 13244   For over a century, the nature versus nurture debate has questioned the relative contributions of genetic sequences and the environment to the phenotype of an individual (Galton 1869). Genome-wide association studies in humans have shown that environmental stress experienced in utero or during[…]

Postdoctoral Positions – RNA pathways in development and disease – NIH/NCI

Posted by on April 19th, 2018

We have open postdoctoral positions in our lab. We are looking for researchers interested in understanding the mechanisms through which non-coding RNAs and RNA metabolic pathways regulate gene expression in mammals and how these mechanisms impact animal development and disease. Our lab uses a combination of mouse models and genetic tools together with biochemical and[…]
