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[…]

Novel optogenetic probe for in vivo optogenetic control

Posted by on June 28th, 2016

Optogenetics has been widely used in the study of neural activity and behavior. By using genetic tools to target light-sensitive proteins to one or populations of neurons in specific region of brain, we can active those neurons by optical stimulation. The foundation of neuron interaction bases on the ion transmission through the neuron membrane. The[…]

Controlling development in a flash: optogenetic modulation of cell contractility during Drosophila morphogenesis

Posted by on February 24th, 2016

Morphogenesis, the shaping of tissues and organs, is driven by a series of events that proceed in a coordinated manner, both spatially and temporally. Such events include changes in cell shape, cell adhesion, and cell migration, which happen at a precise developmental stage in single cells or cell collectives. The detailed study of morphogenetic processes[…]
