PhD position in computational morphogenesis

Posted by on October 15th, 2018

We invite students to apply for a PhD position in computational morphogenesis at the Gene Expression and Morphogenesis Unit (http://cellcollectives.com/) at the Andalusian Centre for Developmental Biology (http://www.cabd.es), in the charming city of Seville, southern Spain. The candidate will be co-supervised by Dr. Luciano Marcon and Dr. Juan R. Martinez-Moraes and will work in the[…]

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.[…]

Pancreatic Beta-Cell Regeneration in Zebrafish – Postdoctoral Position in Dresden

Posted by on May 16th, 2018

Postdoctoral position in the research group of Dr. Nikolay Ninov at the Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden and the Paul Langerhans Institute Dresden (PLID) (of Helmholtz Zentrum München and the German Center for Diabetes Research (DZD e.V.). Our goal is to understand beta-cell regeneration and function in vivo in order to develop innovative cures for[…]

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[…]

Postdoctoral Fellow in Neurodevelopment

Posted by on January 18th, 2018

Applications are invited from highly motivated individuals who are interested in fundamental mechanisms of neuronal migration and axon guidance. The main focus of our research is to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the development of neural circuits using the embryonic spinal cord as a model system (http://www.ucmm.umu.se/english/research/sara-wilson/). The fellowship is funded for two[…]

The people behind the papers – Chloé Dominici & Alain Chédotal

Posted by on January 18th, 2018

Vertebrate brain development is characterised by cell migration, as neurons are often born far from where they need to end up. Migration is regulated by guidance cues and their receptors, but, problematically, many of these molecules are expressed throughout the brain, complicating efforts to spatially and temporally pin down their function. A paper in the[…]

Postdoctoral Position – Imaging of adhesion dynamics and in vivo probing of tissue mechanics

Posted by on January 16th, 2018

Two postdoctoral positions are open at the Institute of Developmental Biology (IBDM) in Marseille (France) to visualize the dynamics of adhesion complexes and probe the cellular and tissue-level mechanics of developing embryos. Successful candidates will develop a project in the context of an interdisciplinary collaboration between the groups of Thomas Lecuit, a biologist, and Pierre-François Lenne,[…]

This year for Christmas, gift yourself with an amazing experience. Apply today for the 2018 CSHL Cell and Developmental Biology of Xenopus course.

Posted by on December 18th, 2017

The end of the year is quickly approaching, and if you are anything like me you are scrambling to try to get as much work done as possible before your holiday break. But while this frequently entails getting papers submitted, committee meetings completed, and experiments wrapped up, I also take the opportunity to reflect on[…]

Workshop on HREM imaging and mouse phenotyping

Posted by on August 8th, 2017

Deciphering the Mechanisms of Developmental Disorders (DMDD) is a large-scale imaging and phenotyping  programme for genetically modified mouse embryos. For embryos at E14.5, the key imaging technique is High Resolution Episcopic Microscopy (HREM), and the resulting images are used to comprehensively phenotype the embryos using a systematic approach.     With a combination of lectures,[…]
