The University of Helsinki is a leading Nordic university with a preeminent role in life science research. Helsinki Institute of Life Science, HiLIFE, is a new life science institute at the University of Helsinki supporting high quality research across campuses and life science faculties. The Cellular Individuality group led by Assistant Professor Juha Saarikangas is[…]

PhD position: Chromosome Dynamics During Spermatogenesis in Drosophila, University of Zurich, Switzerland

Posted by on April 19th, 2018

We seek candidates interested in completing a PhD thesis within the framework of a research project (46 months) funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF). Chromosome reorganization during spermatogenesis is dramatic. Beyond meiosis, it includes chromosome compaction into an elongated sperm nucleus which is accompanied by an almost complete exchange of histones with sperm[…]

Two fully-funded PhD positions in Wnt trafficking at the LSI in Exeter

Posted by on October 9th, 2017

The process of subdividing a tissue into functional units represents a classic problem in pattern formation. Signalling proteins – so-called morphogens – orchestrate this process. The traditional view is that morphogens are released from local source and slowly diffuse through a neighbouring tissue to build up a gradient. As Wnt signals act as a key[…]

Two fully funded PhD Positions in cell, developmental and systems biology at the Universitätsklinikum Freiburg, Germany

Posted by on July 14th, 2017

Two fully funded PhD Positions in cell, developmental and systems biology  at the Universitätsklinikum Freiburg, Germany The Walentek lab studies the molecular mechanisms of mucociliary development, regeneration and disease. Mucociliary epithelia line the embryonic epidermis as well as the respiratory tract of many animal species, and provide an important first line of defense against pathogens[…]

PhD position available at UCL from September 2016 to work on eye development in zebrafish

Posted by on June 27th, 2016

The Fight for Sight charity have provided a three year studentship to Stephen Wilson and Gaia Gestri to support a student to work on the role of the Yap/Taz pathway in the morphogenesis of the eye. The project will use zebrafish as a model and will involve a combination of imaging and molecular genetic approaches[…]

Title: The role and regulation of metabolic reprogramming during successful appendage regeneration Supervisors: Professors Enrique Amaya and Royston Goodacre, University of Manchester Application deadline: January 30, 2015 Description: Many vertebrate species, including fish, amphibians and reptiles, have the ability to regenerate their appendages following amputation [1,2]. The regeneration process coordinates a variety of biological processes,[…]
