We are delighted to announce an opening for a postdoctoral scientist to join the Development & Transcriptional Control group, headed by Vicki Metzis. The post, funded by Wellcome and The Royal Society, is based at the London Institute of Medical Sciences (LMS), which specialises in Epigenetics, Quantitative Biology and Genes and Metabolism.
The Development and Transcriptional Control group is interested in defining how cellular diversity arises during development, and the roles that regulatory elements play in this process. By developing quantitative methods to probe cell identity, we are defining how diverse cellular outcomes are generated in the head versus the trunk of the embryo.
