Starting date end of 2021, beginning of 2022
The 2020 call for the Spanish “Juan de la Cierva Postdoctoral Fellowships” is now open. This is a fantastic opportunity to join the Araújo group, who are focused on identifying the molecular mechanisms underlying single-cell branching during development and disease. We study this during morphogenesis of the Drosophila melanogaster tracheal and nervous systems (Ricolo et al. Current Biology 2016 and Ricolo and Araújo, eLife, 2020), and are also interested in knowing how single-cell branching affects the whole organismal behaviour. We are combining cell analysis and confocal tissue live imaging, with genetic approaches and CRISPR/Cas9 technologies.
We are based at the Institute of Biomedicine of the University of Barcelona (IBUB) and are looking for a motivated and enthusiastic candidate who will play a central role in the lab. You must have a Ph.D. in areas relevant to cell/developmental biology and/or in computational biology (and have defended your Ph.D. thesis after the 1st of January 2016). Applicants are expected to have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, be highly independent and committed to research in a fast-moving and exciting field.
