PhD Studenship in soma-germline communication and signaling regulation in the Drosophila testis (Medway School of Pharmacy, Universities of Kent and Greenwich)

Posted by on February 13th, 2020

A PhD position is available in the lab of Fani Papagiannouli (@Medway School of Pharmacy, Universities of Kent and Greenwich) to study soma-germline communication and the role of cortical polarity in signaling regulation during Drosophila spermatogenesis. The position is funded by a Medway School of Pharmacy Post Graduate Research Scholarship.  Stem cells are critical for[…]

Postdoctoral Position (development biology/ cell biology) m/w/d

Posted by on January 16th, 2020

The Department of Systemic Cell Biology (Prof. Dr. Bastiaens) at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Physiology in Dortmund is offering a postdoctoral position (developmental biology/cell biology) to work in an interdisciplinary team of cell biologists and physicists studying mechanisms of tumorigenesis in intestinal organoids. We are investigating fundamental mechanisms of oncoprotein induced tumor development by[…]

Imaging by computer and drawing by hand

Posted by on March 19th, 2019

An artist and a cultural historian of science visiting the European Molecular Biology Lab (EMBL) Gemma Anderson (University of Exeter) and Janina Wellmann (MECS, Leuphana University Lüneburg) Since Steve Woolgar’s and Bruno Latour’s study Laboratory Life was published in 1979 it has become part of the repertoire of STS scholars and anthropologists to visit the[…]

Visualizing the heterogeneity of single cell data from time-lapse imaging

Posted by on December 12th, 2018

When we examined the kinetics of Rho GTPase activity in endothelial cells in response to receptor stimulation (Reinhard, 2017), we noticed considerable cell-to-cell heterogeneity. In the original work we published graphs with the average response, reflecting the response of the whole cell population. However, these graphs fail to show the cellular heterogeneity. What is the[…]

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[…]

Postdoctoral Training Fellow – Quantitative Biology

Posted by on September 27th, 2017

SUMMARY   An exciting interdisciplinary opportunity has come up in the newly established Quantitative Cell Biology laboratory headed by Dr Silvia Santos. We are seeking a creative, highly motivated postdoc with a strong quantitative background, who enjoys working in a collaborative research environment, to investigate how cells decode signals and irreversibly commit to different cell[…]

The Luschnig group investigates developmental, cellular, and molecular aspects of epithelial biology using a[…]

Accelerated Frogs: Developmental Biology meets Particle Physics

Posted by on August 20th, 2014

I previously wrote a post about the development of a 4-D X-Ray Tomography technique for imaging early Xenopus embryos. Frog embryos are opaque due to their yolky composition and this has proved a challenge for traditional optical microscopy of events in the early stages of Xenopus embryo development. However Julian Moosmann, Ralf Hofmann and Jubin[…]
