Vascular control of heart development and regeneration: PhD and Postdoc positions available

Posted by on November 16th, 2020

The Marín-Juez laboratory, at the CHU Sainte-Justine Research Center,is recruiting a PhD student and a postdoctoral fellow (4-year fully funded positions). Our laboratory is interested in the cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating cardiac regeneration. The successful applicant will join the Marín-Juez laboratory at the CHU Sainte-Justine Research Center, where he/she will have access to state-of-the-art[…]

PhD position @ YUN lab CRTD & MPI CBG Germany

Posted by on September 24th, 2020

The research group of Dr Max Yun, ‘Regeneration of Complex Structures in Adult Vertebrates’ at DFG/CRTD Center for Regenerative Therapies Dresden (Germany) & MPI-CBG is searching for a PhD candidate. The major focus of the group is to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying regeneration in adult vertebrates, using salamanders (newts and axolotls) as[…]

Posted by on September 1st, 2020

The Tissue Regeneration Laboratory within the Biology Department at Wake Forest University is seeking a qualified and highly motivated individual for the position of Lab Manager / Research Assistant to support our work uncovering mechanisms of tissue regeneration in axolotl salamanders. The primary tasks will include managing lab resources, caring for the lab’s axolotl colony,[…]

Postdoc position available at MPI BPC: Comparative genomics in planarians

Posted by on June 30th, 2020

The department of Tissue Dynamics and Regeneration (Dr. Jochen Rink) invites applications for a position as Postdoc (f/m/d) – Comparative genomics in planarians – (Code number 11-20) Planarians are fascinating animals that can regenerate from tiny pieces, harbor adult pluripotent stem cells, scale their bodies over a wide size range and, as a taxonomic group, display[…]

Conversations with my parents (about adult chondrogenesis and spontaneous cartilage repair in the skate, Leucoraja erinacea)

Posted by on June 23rd, 2020

One night, during the summer of 2012, I found myself sitting in a cottage in Woods Hole, trying to explain to my parents why I’d spent much of my professional life studying the little skate (Figure 1). I was a postdoctoral fellow at Dalhousie University at the time, and working almost exclusively with skate as[…]

PhD DTP opportunity: Cell Biology, Univ. Manchester

Definition of integrin signalling networks underlying neuron growth in vivo   Application deadline: 31 January 2020 Application info: LINK Project enquiries: Andreas.Prokop@manchester.ac.uk Martin.Humphries@manchester.ac.uk   Cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) of the plasma membrane physically tie cells together into tissues, both via interaction of cells with other cells or with ECM (extracellular matrix); they also constitute hubs[…]

The serpent’s maw: mouth function and the dynamics of Hydra regeneration

Posted by on September 30th, 2019

One of the biggest open questions in biology is how organisms can form complex patterns (limbs, organs, entire body plans) from initially disordered or very simple states. Every animal does this at the beginning of its life, forming its full complexity from a single cell. Some are capable of similar feats even after their bodies[…]

Research technician – functional approaches in annelid regeneration – Whitney Marine Lab (Florida)

Posted by on August 14th, 2019

Research technician position available for a project focused on functional technique development in annelid worms, with a conceptual focus on evo-devo and regeneration biology. This position is part of an NSF-funded project focused on developing approaches to test gene function in post-embryonic (juvenile and adult) stages of several annelid species. The project is a collaboration[…]

The people behind the papers – Nathalie Rion and Markus Rüegg

Posted by on April 18th, 2019

This interview, the 60th in our series, was recently published in Development In development and during regeneration in adults, muscle fibres develop from muscle progenitor cells, and the proliferation, differentiation and fusion of these progenitors needs to be tightly controlled and co-ordinated. A new paper in Development studies the role of the mTOR protein in this process using genetic[…]
