Post-doctoral position in the Tsiantis lab, MPIPZ, at the interphase of development and metabolic physiology

Posted by on June 28th, 2019

We have previously characterized processes underlying diversity in leaf form between and within species and have identified genetic pathways influencing this trait. Here, we propose to investigate the possible physiological and metabolic significance of this variation, as well as possible feedbacks between metabolism and leaf form. The project will involve comparative studies of Cardamine hirsuta[…]

Postdoctoral Position to study Morphogenesis in Embryonic Development and Human Diseases

Posted by on May 15th, 2019

An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in Jianbo Wang’s lab at the Univ. of Alabama at Birmingham. We study how shape forms during embryogenesis, and how aberrant shape formation leads to congenital birth defects. The process of shape formation is known as morphogenesis, and is regulated in part by the planar cell polarity (PCP) pathway.[…]

Echoes of “Chromatin-Based Regulation of Development” workshop OR “to TAD or not to TAD”?

Posted by on May 14th, 2019

The non-profit publishing groups can make a real difference The very best part of being a scientist is cracking mysteries of the universe and what is in it. The second best thing about this profession, in my opinion, is being part of a scientific community. Conversations, conferences, workshops, collaborations, networking, support and constant inspiration from[…]
