Postdoc opportunity in Morphogenesis & Developmental Mechanobiology

Posted by on November 17th, 2020

The Nerurkar Lab is looking for Postdoctoral Researchers with an interest in the interplay between molecular and mechanical aspects of vertebrate morphogenesis. Using the chick embryo, we combine live in vivo imaging, embryology and molecular genetics with engineering and physics approaches to study how developmental signals modulate physical forces that shape the embryo, and how[…]

Postdoctoral Fellowship Opportunities to Study Gene Regulatory Dynamics in induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSCs)

Posted by on November 16th, 2020

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (N.I.S.T.) is recruiting recent PhD’s. The laboratory is located near Washington, DC. Our research program focuses on characterizing the dynamics of gene regulatory networks in human iPSCs and in developing quantitative models that describe the pluripotency landscape. Possible start dates: 6/2021 – 12/2021   We invite interested candidates to[…]

PhD position in Edinburgh: The cellular niche and the Hippo pathway

Posted by on November 13th, 2020

Cells are located in a continuously evolving and dynamic microenvironment.  Cell are here stimulated by a complex range of cell-cell interactions, the extracellular matrix, chemicals and mechanical stimuli. This niche dictates cellular function. Cellular responses and interactions to their surroundings are fundamental and integral part of most cellular processes, including during development and regenerative processes.[…]
