Posted by on June 26th, 2017

A 3-year postdoc position is available in the group of Dr. Patrick Steinmetz at the Sars Centre in Bergen (Norway) to study the evolution of animal nutrient and growth homeostasis . The project is based on a tissue-specific transcriptome analysis comparing fed and fasting animals in the sea anemone Nematostella vectensis. The successful applicant will[…]

Postdoctoral Position in Cardiovascular Development

Posted by on June 23rd, 2017

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Sophie Astrof at Thomas Jefferson University to study roles of cell-extracellular matrix interactions during cardiovascular development and disease. My laboratory utilizes genetics, cell biology and confocal imaging to elucidate developmental and molecular mechanisms of aortic arch artery patterning and the formation of the cardiac outflow[…]

Postdoctoral position, Developmental Genetics, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus

Posted by on June 22nd, 2017

A postdoctoral position is immediately available at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colorado in David Clouthier’s lab to study molecular mechanisms regulating facial morphogenesis. The laboratory is currently investigating the molecular and cellular functions of basic helix-loop-helix transcription factors and non-coding RNAs in facial development, with an emphasis on understanding the[…]

Postdoctoral position, Genetics and Development of Morphological Evolution, University of Oklahoma

Posted by on June 21st, 2017

A postdoctoral position is available in J.P. Masly’s lab at the University of Oklahoma ( to study the genetic, developmental, and evolutionary bases of morphological variation among Drosophila species. Our research focuses on understanding how evolutionary change at the genetic level directs variation in development that gives rise to species-specific phenotypic differences. The successful candidate[…]

Hello everyone!! My name is Nadia Edelsztein and I am a PhD student from Argentina working in the Reproductive and Development field! I am addressing you all to ask for a big favour. I entered a photo contest a couple of weeks ago, held by the institute where I used to learn German. The idea[…]

NIH launches competition to develop human eye tissue in a dish

Posted by on June 21st, 2017

3-D Retina Organoid Challenge to spur breakthroughs in treating blinding diseases The National Eye Institute (NEI), part of the National Institutes of Health, has opened the first stage of a federal prize competition designed to generate miniature, lab-grown human retinas. The retina is the light- sensitive tissue in the back of the eye. Over the[…]

In Development this week (Vol. 144, Issue 12)

Posted by on June 21st, 2017

Here are the highlights from the current issue of Development:   Btbd7 branches out across multiple organs Dynamic changes in epithelial cell-cell adhesion and motility are crucial for branching morphogenesis – the process by which highly branched epithelial organs, such as the lung and kidney, grow and develop from a simple epithelial bud. Although many[…]
