Two postdoc positions on C. elegans neuroblast migration and evolution, in Korswagen lab, Utrecht, and Félix lab, Paris

Posted by , on 24 June 2016

Closing Date: 15 March 2021

Two HFSP-funded postdoctoral positions (each for a duration of 3 years) are available from 1 December 2016 to study the development, robustness and evolution of QR neuroblast migration in C. elegans and related species, in the laboratories of Hendrik Korswagen at the Hubrecht Institute, The Netherlands and of Marie-Anne Félix at the Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris, France. The collaborative project is based on the recent finding by the Korswagen group that this cell migration is controlled through the timed expression of a Wnt receptor (see Mentink et al. Dev Cell 2014 for more information) and an important aim of the project is to understand how such precise timing of gene expression is achieved.


If you are interested in one of these positions, please send a CV, a statement of research accomplishments and interests, and the contact information of three references to
