Post doctoral position available to study the neural crest gene regulatory network (NC-GRN) in Xenopus and zebrafish. Neural crest cells are stem cell-like progenitors that migrate extensively and are essential to the establishment of the vertebrate body plan. Misregulation of components of the NC-GRN underlies numerous human diseases and congenital disorders. Studies involve post-translational regulation of known network components, and use of proteomics and next generation sequencing to identify novel components.
Highly motivated applicants with a PhD and strong background in cell and molecular biology and/or developmental biology are encourage to apply. Please send a CV, brief description of research interests, and the names of three references to:
