Postdoctoral Fellow Position – Genetics of Congenital Craniofacial and Neurodevelopment Malformations

Posted by on October 10th, 2017

An NIH-funded Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available in the Stottmann lab in the Divisions of Human Genetics and Developmental Biology.  Our interests are in the genetic basis of congenital malformations affecting the forebrain and craniofacial structures. Projects involve characterizing novel genes and mutations identified through forward genetic approaches in both mouse and human. We[…]

Postdoctoral Associate – Cell Polarity and Development of the Inner Ear

Posted by on May 28th, 2017

    How do we perceive sounds, gravity or head movements? It all starts during development, when sensory cells in the inner ear acquire a crown of motion detectors known as the stereocilia bundle. The Tarchini laboratory investigates the molecular mechanisms that corral and layer stereocilia into a functional bundle, a highly polarized architectural process that,[…]

Recognition and metrics for peer review activity: reviewercredits.com

Posted by on April 25th, 2017

In this post, I would like to introduce to “The Node” our website, reviewercredits.com, launched last July by myself and my friend Robert Fruscio. We are both physicians (I’m in critical care, he is in Gynecological oncology) and several times we chatted about peer review: we always realized how this activity is poorly recognized, despite[…]

Postdoctoral Opportunities at the National Institutes of Health

Posted by on September 28th, 2016

ROLE of THYROID HORMONE in MOUSE INTESTINAL DEVELOPMENT and REGENERATION. Thyroid hormone (T3) is known to be critical for postembryonic development in mammals (around birth). This laboratory has been taking a multi-faceted approach to investigate the function of T3 and T3 receptors (TRs) in vivo by using Xenopus and mouse as models. A major recent focus is on how[…]

The culture of research and the future of the science system

Posted by on September 22nd, 2016

On Monday, September 19th, a group of early career researchers from across the UK and across the sciences gathered at the Royal Society in London to discuss the future of research at a one day conference. As the Node’s Community Manager, I was lucky enough to be allowed to join in. I’ve only recently left research, and[…]
