Understanding fundamental roles of the cytoskeleton downstream of Wnt/PCP signalling in neurodegeneration
A fully funded studentship open to home/EU students is available. We are seeking a highly motivated and collaborative individual to join the dual PhD studentship of the Universities of Liverpool (UK) and Szeged (Hungary). The successful candidate will work under the supervision of Dr Natalia Sanchez-Soriano (Institute of Translational Medicine, University of Liverpool) and Dr József Mihály (Biological Research Centre, Hungarian Academy of Sciences). You will work the first 2 years of your project at the University of Liverpool and the following 1.5 years at the Biological Research Centre, Szeged in Hungary. Candidates should have a master’s degree or equivalent.
You will investigate the links between the Wnt/PCP pathway, cytoskeleton remodelling and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, using the model organism Drosophila. You will gain experience in Drosophila neurobiology, molecular/cell biology and imaging. See more details about our work. Note that there are two further positions available for a postdoctoral researcher and technician. Details can be found here.
Candidates should email Natalia Sanchez- Soriano (Natalia1[at]liverpool.ac.uk) or Dr József Mihály (mihaly.jozsef[at]brc.mta.hu) with an expression of interest, a CV and suggestions for 2 referees.
