A postdoctoral position to investigate embryonic cell polarity, including molecular and cell-biological aspects of epithelial architecture and convergent extension movements.
£25K approx. including London allowance.
Polarity proteins and signalling pathways controlling embryonic morphogenesis:
This three year postdoctoral position is to investigate embryonic cell polarity, including molecular and cell-biological aspects of epithelial architecture and convergent extension movements. The project will use Xenopus embryos in fixed- and live-imaging to analyze the role of key molecules in the Wnt pathways and PAR polarity cassette (See Ossipova et al. (2005) Developmental Cell 8:829-41 and Green & Davidson, Nature Cell Biology, September 2007). It would suit an energetic candidate with experience in embryology, cell biology and/or molecular biology. Imaging expertise would be a plus.
The post is at the Guy’s Campus of King’s College London, located near London Bridge in the top-ranked Department of Craniofacial Development.
Salary will be on the standard Research Council scale (£25K approx. including London allowance).
