Post-Doctoral Research Associate in Developmental Neurobiology

Posted by , on 19 September 2012

Closing Date: 15 March 2021

Applications are invited to join our research group  at UCL Institute of Child Health in London. We are investigating the molecular and developmental mechanisms, genetics and cell biology underlying neural tube closure and neural tube defects (NTDs), mainly using mouse models. Recent research has identified key roles for Grainyhead-like transcription factors in regulating neural tube closure. The purpose of the current project is to further define the role of Grhl genes and their targets in neural tube closure. This project will complement ongoing studies that address the cell and developmental biology of neurulation, analysis of metabolic factors and testing of novel therapies.

This is an MRC-funded position in Dr Nick Greene and Prof Andy Copp’s lab and is available immediately. Applicants should have, or shortly expect to obtain, a PhD in developmental biology and/or molecular biology, preferably with some experience in mammalian systems.  Informal enquiries can be made to Nick Greene ( Please apply at Ref:1281142 (closing date 4th October 2012)
