1 PhD Position : Characterization of Hedgehog morphogens in vitro and in vivo

Posted by on October 18th, 2018

1 PhD Position : Characterization of Hedgehog morphogens in vitro and in vivo Hedgehog (Hh) morphogens play important roles in development and cancer, but their mode of extracellular transport to target cells is only poorly understood. Thus, we aim at the characterization of various unusual posttranslational regulatory mechanisms in Hh biology, such as Hh multimerization[…]

Autonomous traffic – Wnt cytonemes lead the way.

Posted by on October 2nd, 2018

by Lauren Porter and Steffen Scholpp Living Systems Institute, University of Exeter, UK   The importance of Wnt signalling in developmental processes, wound healing and stem cell control has long been established. Historically, scientists attributed the transport of Wnt proteins from the source to the receiver cell to simple diffusion, however, this explanation did not[…]

BBSRC-funded postdoc position – neuronal ageing

Posted by on June 26th, 2018

BBSRC funded postdoc position in the laboratory of Natalia Sanchez-Soriano (, to study the cell biology of neuronal ageing and the underlying mechanisms.  The aim of the project is to understand the harmful changes that neurons undergo at the subcellular level during ageing, and unravel the cascade of events that cause them, with a focus[…]

PhD position: Chromosome Dynamics During Spermatogenesis in Drosophila, University of Zurich, Switzerland

Posted by on April 19th, 2018

We seek candidates interested in completing a PhD thesis within the framework of a research project (46 months) funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF). Chromosome reorganization during spermatogenesis is dramatic. Beyond meiosis, it includes chromosome compaction into an elongated sperm nucleus which is accompanied by an almost complete exchange of histones with sperm[…]
