We invite applications for a postdoctoral research fellow to join the lab of “Imaging and Regulation of Morphogenesis in Higher Vertebrates” at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, France. Our lab is interested in understanding morphogenesis of developing structures, at a cellular level. Using avian models we combine state-of-the-art live imaging microscopy, quantitative analyses, biophysical, cellular and molecular biology approaches to access the cellular dynamics of development.
This specific project aims at elucidating the cellular events underlying the initiation of limb bud formation and how such cell events are dynamically regulated at the molecular level, using the generation of transgenic avian lines. For more information about projects and the lab please visit: www.jgroslab.com.
The position is a 4-year postdoctoral position funded by the ERC (European Research Council), available immediately, although the starting date is flexible. We are seeking highly motivated candidates with expertise in developmental and/or cellular biology. Experience in live imaging microscopy and chick development will be positively considered.
The Pasteur Institute, located in the vibrant city of Paris, has a longstanding history of excellence in developmental biology and in science in general, with access to excellent core facilities.
Applicants should send a cover letter (describing briefly research interests), a C.V and contact information for up to 3 academic references to firstname.lastname@example.org….
