ERC-funded PhD and postdoc positions in the Cellular sex and physiology group, Nice

Posted by on January 10th, 2020

PhD and Postdoc positions are available in the group “Cellular sex and physiology” in the Institute of Biology Valrose – Nice (France). We are interested in developmental, metabolic or behavioural sex differences and aim to understand how sex chromosome constitution (XX versus XY) impacts physiology across the body. We are currently identifying new genes/pathways and[…]

New H2020 project will manufacture novel stem cell products for clinical trials in Type 1 Diabetes

Posted by on December 13th, 2019

The ISLET project is a multi-center collaboration of leading European researchers that has been awarded 8 million Euros in a 5-year period. The project will develop advanced stem cell products ready for use in clinical trials in Type 1 Diabetes. Professor Henrik Semb from DanStem is coordinating the project. The ISLET project will develop a[…]

Posted by on December 6th, 2019

Translational Immunology 26-27 MARCH 2020, GHENT, BELGIUM   The aim of this conference is to bridge the translational gap in immunopathology, bringing together clinicians, research scientists and industry partners to discuss prominent advances from the bench to the clinic. The different sessions will have a particular focus on precision medicine in general, starting from disease-oriented[…]

Post-doctoral position: Chromatin dynamics in early embryogenesis.

Posted by on December 5th, 2019

The Blythe Lab at Northwestern University seeks to recruit a motivated postdoctoral fellow to investigate chromatin dynamics in early Drosophila embryogenesis.   Research in the Blythe Lab focuses on a critical period of embryogenesis termed the maternal-to-zygotic transition (MZT). During this time, embryos establish an initial ‘ground state’ of chromatin structure that defines the initial[…]

Research technician position in the Department of Tissue Dynamics & Regeneration

Posted by on November 26th, 2019

The Department of Tissue Dynamics & Regeneration (@ Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry) is recruiting a new research technician! The department of Dr. Jochen Rink studies the fascinating ability of planarian flatworms to regenerate complete animals from tiny tissue pieces. The department employs a broad range of techniques to understand the molecular mechanisms of[…]

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

Posted by on November 25th, 2019

We are looking for an RNA molecular biologist/molecular developmental biologist (three years, BBSRC funded, mostly based in Aberdeen) (apply by 5 January 2020,–391526.html) 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 the research group of David Ferrier at[…]

PhD studentship: Identifying mechanisms for cell division plane orientation in plants

Posted by on November 13th, 2019

Supervisors: Jill Harrison and Tom Gorochowski Project Description Summary: Plant shape is a primary determinant of productivity and yield because it affects light interception and photosynthesis. As plant cells are bound by a cell wall and cannot move, shape arises as an outcome of the plane of new cell divisions, and subsequent cell growth. Flowering[…]

CASE PhD studentship: Intercepting CLAVATA receptor-like kinase function to engineer ear size in wheat

Posted by on November 13th, 2019

Supervisors: Jill Harrison, Keith Edwards and Chris Burt (RAGT Seeds) Project Description Summary: Ensuring continuous global food security will be a major challenge of the 21st century, and wheat contributes approximately 20% of the total calories consumed by humans (FAO, 2017). In cereals like wheat, inflorescence (ear) size determines the number of flowers (florets) and[…]
