Closing Date: 15 March 2021
The Fight for Sight charity have provided a three year studentship to Stephen Wilson and Gaia Gestri to support a student to work on the role of the Yap/Taz pathway in the morphogenesis of the eye. The project will use zebrafish as a model and will involve a combination of imaging and molecular genetic approaches to resolve the cell behaviours that regulate eye formation in health and disease.
We are looking for a talented, motivated and enthusiastic student to work in a team of scientists studying various aspects of brain and eye development (www.ucl.ac.uk/zebrafish-group/). Candidates will have suitable MSc and/or BSC qualifications and ideally experience and expertise in imaging and image analysis and in working with zebrafish as a model system.
