A 2-year postdoctoral position in developmental biology is available in the group of Grigory Genikhovich at the Department of Neurosciences and Developmental Biology of the University of Vienna. The successful candidate will work on an Austrian Science Foundation-supported project “BMP shuttling and the evolution of animal bilaterality” performed in collaboration with the group of Prof. Dr. Siegfried Roth at the University of Cologne. The work will involve comparing the shuttling capacity of a range of cnidarian and bilaterian chordin proteins using Drosophila S2 cell line as well as Drosophila embryos as test models. The goal is to evaluate the role of Chordin-dependent shuttling of BMP ligands in the evolution of bilateral body symmetry in animals.
The successful candidate must hold a PhD in biology or a related field and be first or co-first author on at least two peer-reviewed publications. The position requires experience in Drosophila genetics and knowledge of the standard molecular biology techniques, as well as excellent oral and written English skills. The postdoc is expected to perform part of the project in the Roth lab at the University of Cologne.
