Applications from individuals using quantitative and interdisciplinary approaches are particularly welcome. The position includes competitive[…]

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[…]

PhD position available in annelid Evo-Devo in the Meyer Lab

Posted by on June 5th, 2019

A PhD position is available in the laboratory of Néva P. Meyer at Clark University in Worcester, MA USA (https://wordpress.clarku.edu/nmeyer/) beginning as early as August 2019 as follows: Spiralians are a great group of animals to study evolution of body plans in part because many spiralian taxa develop via a stereotypic and likely ancestral cleavage[…]

Tenure track faculty position in Neurobiology-University of South Carolina

Posted by on September 10th, 2018

The Department of Biological Sciences at the University of South Carolina invites applications for a tenure-track position as an Assistant Professor with a research program in neurobiology. The successful candidate will be expected to establish an independent, extramurally funded research program focusing on cell-cell communication in neural development and/or disease. We are especially interested in[…]

Postdoc position on ageing in the Drosophila nervous system

Posted by on September 6th, 2018

BBSRC funded postdoc position in the laboratory of Natalia Sánchez-Soriano (https://sanchezlab.wordpress.com), to study the cell biology of neuronal ageing and the underlying mechanisms.     On this project you will study the harmful changes that neurons undergo at the subcellular level during ageing, and unravel the cascade of events that cause them. The focus will[…]

It’s in the head: How male and female fruit flies grow apart

Posted by on December 7th, 2017

A discussion of our recent paper: Annick Sawala & Alex P. Gould (2017). The sex of specific neurons controls female body growth in Drosophila. PLoS Biology, October 4 2017.   In the beginning… The story behind this study provides yet another example of where the pursuit of a few chance observations developed into an interesting project[…]

OIST Developmental Neurobiology Course 2017

Posted by on November 30th, 2017

Built into the side of a tree covered hill on a remote Japanese island  lies what at first sight appears to be a super-villain’s lair, or perhaps  the HQ of Jurassic Park. In fact we had arrived at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) for their 2 week Developmental Neurobiology Course. DNC is[…]

Postdoctoral & Technician Position Investigating the Cell Biology of Neurodegeneration
