Post-Doc Position: Alternative-Splicing and RNA isoform expression in Wnt signalling

Posted by on August 18th, 2019

We are looking for an RNA molecular biologist/molecular developmental biologist (three years, BBSRC funded, currently proposed start date 1 January 2020, mostly based in Aberdeen) (apply by 26 August 2019) https://www.abdn.ac.uk/research/jobs/IMS165R This project will study alternative transcript expression, splicing and function of TCF/LEF genes in the Wnt signalling pathway. This is a close collaboration with[…]

Postdoctoral position in Mouse Embryonic Development and Stem Cell Biology

Posted by on August 15th, 2019

We offer one fully-funded postdoctoral position up to five years in the Laboratory of Genome Integrity located at the National Institutes of Health (NHI/NCI, Bethesda, MD).   Our laboratory uses human and mouse embryonic stem cells (ESCs) as well as mouse embryos to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying the maintenance/exit of pluripotency and self-renewal. Understanding[…]

Postdoctoral Position in Extracellular Matrix-Directed Regeneration

Posted by on August 15th, 2019

The Musculoskeletal Extracellular Matrix Laboratory (MEML) in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Colorado – Boulder is seeking an exceptionally creative postdoctoral researcher to investigate the mechanistic basis for how extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling directs regeneration in mammals.  The project is a collaborative effort using spiny mice, an emerging model for mammalian[…]

We’re telling tales of sex and death, and exploring the very darkest side of genetics.

Research Fellow position; inter-organ communication (Rosello-Diez lab, Australia)

Posted by on August 15th, 2019

A Research Fellow position is available at the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute to study how body proportions are regulated during normal development and after perturbation of  growth of the long bones. The focus of research is on the communication mechanisms that operate between organs to maintain body proportions during development, especially those involving the circulatory[…]

Multiple NIH-funded Staff Scientist/ Research Associate and Postdoctoral Research Fellow positions are available in the Stottmann lab in the Divisions of Human Genetics and Developmental Biology.  We are interested in the genetic basis of congenital craniofacial malformations. Projects are focused on characterizing novel genes and mutations identified through human whole genome sequencing. We use sequencing[…]

Research technician – functional approaches in annelid regeneration – Whitney Marine Lab (Florida)

Posted by on August 14th, 2019

Research technician position available for a project focused on functional technique development in annelid worms, with a conceptual focus on evo-devo and regeneration biology. This position is part of an NSF-funded project focused on developing approaches to test gene function in post-embryonic (juvenile and adult) stages of several annelid species. The project is a collaboration[…]

The people behind the papers – Shai Eyal and Elazar Zelzer

Posted by on August 13th, 2019

This interview, the 67th in our series, was recently published in Development Most bones in the vertebrate skeleton are made in the same way – endochondrial ossification – yet they display a variety of shapes and sizes. The question of how these unique bone morphologies, including the superstructures that protrude from their surfaces, arise during development is[…]

Turning back the clock of neural progenitor cells: a simple recipe to generate de novo retinal ganglion cells

Posted by on August 12th, 2019

Press release for a new Development paper on reprogramming in the retina. Scientists at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in collaboration with the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, Germany, discovered that a single transcription factor drives retinal progenitor cells to reacquire the potency to generate Retinal ganglion cells. The[…]
