A postdoctoral position is available to study the cellular basis of morphogenesis in vertebrate craniofacial development. This work will integrate mouse molecular genetic approaches with live cell imaging, cell biology and biochemistry to study signaling mechanisms in development, and how this signaling goes wrong in congenital disease (e.g. PLos Biology 2015 13(4): e1002122). The position is in the laboratory of Jeff Bush (bush.ucsf.edu), in the UCSF Department of Cell and Tissue Biology and Program in Craniofacial Biology. The laboratory is located at the UCSF Parnassus Heights campus, in the center of San Francisco. UCSF offers an outstanding developmental biology community and a supportive working environment.
Candidates with a Ph.D. degree in a biological science and research experience in live cell or live embryo imaging, molecular biology, genetics, or biochemistry should submit a C.V. and names of at least 2 references via email to: email@example.com
