Cell and Developmental Biology

Short Code: 

Part-Time Research Technician (40% FTE)

Summary of Job Purpose and Principal Duties
An enthusiastic, highly motivated individual is sought to study the signalling pathways regulating cell fate choice in stem cells of the early (chick and mouse) embryo. The successful applicant will provide technical assistance to researchers in Dr Dale’s Group with the option of having their own project in addition. Full training will be given in specialized techniques.

The position is funded by the MRC and is available for three years.

Postdoctoral Research Assistant (Notch signalling during gastrulation)

Summary of Job Purpose and Principal Duties
A postdoc position is available immediately in the group of Kim Dale at the College of Life Sciences in Dundee, Scotland.

Building on recently published work, the project is looking at the role of Notch signalling in regulating contribution of stem cell-like progenitor cells to distinct lineages in the early gastrula stage chick and mouse embryo.

Postdoctoral Research Assistant

One year post-doctoral position for developmental biologist with experience of early chick embryo, manipulation and culture. Expertise in molecular biology and experience with preparation and analysis of RNAseq samples from early embryos would be a distinct advantage.

Post will be available from 30 October 2011.

Postdoctoral Research Assistant

Summary of Job Purpose and Principal Duties
We are looking for you, a skilled, goal-oriented post-doc to study the mechanisms of cell growth using high throughput approaches (Björklund et al, Nature 2006; Varjosalo et al, Cell 2008) in the laboratory of Dr. Mikael Björklund at the College of Life Sciences, University of Dundee.

Principal Investigator

This is an excellent opportunity for career development level researchers and well-established Principal Investigators to join the Division of Cell & Developmental Biology in the College of Life Sciences, University of Dundee. This division has world-class strengths in vertebrate, Drosophila and Dictyostelium development as well as epithelial cell biology, real-time imaging and systems approaches including biophysical and mathematical modelling
