EMBL GROUP LEADER POSITION – Developmental Biology Unit

Posted by on September 5th, 2018

The Developmental Biology Unit seeks to understand the general principles and mechanisms underlying the development of multicellular organisms. Researchers in the unit combine the power of genetic model organisms with quantitative imaging and -omics technologies, synthetic biology, reduced (in vitro) systems and theoretical modelling, to create a cross-cutting approach to modern developmental biology. Research in[…]

Stairway to Learning

Posted by on March 30th, 2012

When I stepped into the Institute of Genetics, Mainz, I stepped into the world of neural development – I was like Aladdin in the Cave of Wonders! It was all so new to me – so exciting, and so much to learn! Prof. Gerhard Technau’s group worked on different aspects of Drosophila neural development –[…]

PhD-student Position in Thalamus Development / Tissue Engineering in Zebrafish

Posted by on September 21st, 2011

We are looking for a highly motivated PhD student to study development and regeneration of the thalamus in zebrafish. Stroke is a prevalent and devastating disorder, and no treatment is currently available to restore lost neuronal function after stroke. In 10% of all stroke patients, a remote damage of the thalamus has been documented. We[…]
