Research Associate – University College London

Posted by , on 17 June 2016

Closing Date: 15 March 2021

Applications are invited for the post of Research Associate. This post will be based in the Zebrafish Group (with Masazumi Tada) of the Department of Cell & Developmental Biology (CDB). Another post is being advertised by the Laboratory for Epithelial Cell Biology (with Karl Matter and Maria Balda) of the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology (IoO).

The successful applicant will join a collaborative research programme that focuses on the role of mechanotransduction at epithelial tight junctions in epithelial differentiation and dynamics, and early development. The aim is to analyze the molecular mechanisms of how tension at tight junctions is transmitted between adhesion proteins and the cytoskeleton, and the roles such processes play during epithelial cell dynamics and differentiation in vitro and during zebrafish gastrulation. (J Cell Biol 208, 821-838, 2015; J Cell Biol 204, 111-127, 2014; Nat Cell Biol 13, 150-166, 2011; Development 136, 383-392, 2009; Development 139, 3897-3904, 2012; Nat Rev Mol Cell Biol 2016).
