Postdoctoral Research Associate position at UCL

Posted by , on 25 June 2012

Closing Date: 15 March 2021

Applications are invited to join a research group  investigating the developmental mechanisms, genetics and cell biology underlying neural tube closure and neural tube defects (NTDs). Recent research has identified key roles for Grainyhead-like transcription factors in regulating neural tube closure. The purpose of the current project is to further define the role of Grhl genes and their targets in neural tube closure. This project will complement ongoing studies that address the cell and developmental biology of neurulation, analysis of metabolic factors and testing of novel therapies.

This is an MRC-funded position in Nick Greene and Andy Copp’s lab and is available immediately (with some flexibility in start date). Applicants should have, or shortly expect to obtain, a PhD in developmental biology and/or molecular biology, preferably with some experience in mammalian systems.  Informal enquiries can be made to Dr Nick Greene ( Please apply at Ref:1258912 (closing date 12th July).
