Postdoctoral Position on WNT signaling in craniofacial development, University of British Columbia, CANADA

Posted by , on 15 July 2012

Closing Date: 15 March 2021

A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Richman lab to investigate the function of non-canonical Wnt signaling during craniofacial development in the avian embryo.  Our lab has developed new tools in which to visualize cell organization in post-migratory neural crest-derived mesenchyme (Geetha-Loganathan et al. 2011, Dev Dyn 240:2108–2119). Approaches used will include in vivo grafting to the face, static and time-lapse confocal microscopy,l micromass culture and expression profiling of cells with perturbations of the non-canonical signaling pathways. This project will lead to the discovery of the morphogenetic mechanisms underlying species specific form as well as the basis for human craniofacial abnormalities. UBC has new core facilities for 3D imaging including Optical Projection Tomography, tunable laser confocal microscopy and μCT. Applicants should have recently completed a PhD (2 years or less) and have related research experience in developmental biology and/or cell biology. Salary support is available from research grants but applicants will be encouraged to apply for independent support. Please email a CV, statement of research interests and contact information for three referees to:

Dr. Joy Richman,
