Postdoc and graduate positions available to study growth control in animal development

Posted by , on 31 October 2017

Closing Date: 15 March 2021

The lab of Savraj Grewal (University of Calgary, Canada) is looking to recruit new postdocs and grad students.

Our lab investigates how growth is controlled during animal development. We use a combination of molecular and genetic approaches to investigate the cell-cell signalling pathways and the genetic mechanisms that govern the control of cell, tissue and body growth in Drosophila. Our main focus to-date has been the conserved insulin and TOR kinase pathways, and understanding how they regulate cellular and animal metabolism to drive growth. Further information on our research can be found here. Recent publications can be found here.

POSTDOCS: applicants with a Ph.D. and strong background in developmental biology, genetics, or molecular biology are encouraged to apply. Interested individuals should send a CV and a short statement of research interests to grewalss@ucalgary.

GRAD STUDENTS: applicants with a strong undergraduate degree in any area related to the biological sciences are encouraged to apply. Interested individuals should send a CV and  a short statement of research interests to grewalss@ucalgary.
