“Juan de la Cierva” Postdoctoral Fellowship

Posted by on December 16th, 2020

Closing date for applications 19th of January 2021 Starting date end of 2021, beginning of 2022 The 2020 call for the Spanish “Juan de la Cierva Postdoctoral Fellowships” is now open. This is a fantastic opportunity to join the Araújo group, who are focused on identifying the molecular mechanisms underlying single-cell branching during development and[…]

Actin and microtubules link to form a tube within a single cell

Posted by on December 14th, 2020

In the Genetics of Cell Behaviour in Development laboratory, at the Department of Genetics, Microbiology and Statistics at the University of Barcelona, we work with the terminal cells (TCs) of the tracheal system of Drosophila melanogaster, which are very interesting cells. During embryonic development, they are able to generate a tube within their cytoplasm, a[…]

The evolution of nerves: understanding the roots of neurodegeneration

Posted by on October 27th, 2020

Application Deadline: 22 January 2021 Supervisors: Andreas Prokop, Matthew Ronshaugen, Karl Kadler Project details How to apply To develop remedial strategies for neurodegeneration in age and disease, we need to improve our understanding of the cell biology of neurons – in particular their axons. Axons are the cable-like, up-to-meter long processes of neurons that wire[…]

Postdoc in neural stem cell metabolism – Francis Crick Institute, London

Posted by on October 19th, 2020

  A four year postdoctoral position in the lab of Alex Gould is now available. Previous work in the laboratory, using Drosophila, has shown that the neural stem cell niche plays a critical role in sparing the developing CNS from stresses such as nutrient restriction and hypoxia (PMID: 26451484, PMID: 21816278). We are now looking[…]

Postdoctoral Research Fellow position in stem cells and intestinal regeneration- Patel lab U. of Bristol

Posted by on September 6th, 2020

We are looking for a passionate, intellectually curious and creative postdoctoral research fellow with a strong interest in tissue maintenance, regeneration and ageing to join our lab.   The Patel lab at the School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, University of Bristol studies how tissues regenerate themselves after damage and how they maintain themselves over[…]

Neuronal dendrite structure: new manuscript on Biorxiv

Posted by on July 16th, 2020

Happy to share the latest manuscript by André Castro @castro_neuro from the @HCuntz with @GTavosanis labs! We show how a temporal arrangement of stochastic developmental processes achieves efficient dendritic trees both in terms of wire and function. #Drosophila #comp_neuro https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.07.09.195446v1 (No Ratings Yet)Loading…

PhD student and postdoc positions in the Tavosanis lab at DZNE, Bonn, Germany

Posted by on July 14th, 2020

One PhD student and one postdoc position will be available in the @GTavosanis lab starting from September 2020. The two planned projects will focus on: The cellular mechanisms that support the differentiation of neuronal dendrites (see Stuerner et al., Development 2019). This project will combine the generation of molecular tools for acute manipulation of protein[…]

Phase separation mediated Par complex cluster formation in cell polarity

Posted by on July 13th, 2020

Ziheng Liu and Ying Yang The asymmetry in cell morphology and the asymmetric distribution of intracellular organelles, proteins, nucleic acids and other components are the hallmarks of cellular polarity, possessed by most, if not all, cells. Polarity plays important roles in cell differentiation and function, and its dysregulation is intimately related to developmental defects, tumor[…]

An evolutionary fable: the black pencil and the rubber.

Posted by on June 18th, 2020

By Héloïse Dufour, Shigeyuki Koshikawa and Cédric Finet In this post we will discuss our recent paper entitled “Temporal flexibility of gene regulatory network underlies a novel wing pattern in flies” [1]. We initiated the present project in Sean Carroll’s lab where the pigmentation in drosophilids was used as a model to study evolutionary genetics.[…]

3-year PhD Project on “Transcriptional regulation of intestinal stem cells during ageing”

Posted by on June 9th, 2020

The Korzelius lab has a funded position for a 3-year PhD at the University of Kent in Canterbury, U.K. We use the Drosophila intestine as a model system for age-related decline of organ function. Similar to the mammalian small intestine and colon, the fly intestine is maintained by a population of adult Intestinal Stem Cells[…]
