Postdoc Position – Nuclear Organization, Gene Regulation and Mouse Development @ NIH – Bethesda, USA
We are at the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) at NIH. Our lab is interested in understanding cell lineage differentiation, gene regulation and how non-coding DNA elements and the 3D architecture of chromosomes contribute to these processes during early mouse development.

PhD student position in the Weidinger lab at the Institute of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology of Ulm University, Germany
A PhD student (TV-L 13/65%, m/f) position is avilable to study molecular mechanisms of osteoblast plasticity during zebrafish fin regeneration.The ability to regenerate lost body parts is one of the most fascinating phenomena in biology. In contrast to mammals and humans, some other vertebrates can completely regenerate their limbs/fins after amputation. Our lab is interested in unraveling the underlying cellular and molecular mechanisms. We have found that bone regenerates via de-differentiation of osteoblasts. Cellular de-differentiation is a rare process in vivo, and little is known about its molecular regulation. We have performed an in vivo small molecular screen to identify regulators of osteoblast de-differentiation and are now looking for a PhD student to study candidates derived from this screen. We are looking for an enthusiastic, highly motivated scientist (m/f) who is dedicated to performing basic research. The position is initially available for three years; an extension might be possible.
- Training in molecular biology, cellular biology, developmental biology or related fields.
- Enthusiasm for regenerative biology.
- Excellent communication skills in spoken and written English.
- Previous research experience with zebrafish, bone, and/or animal models of regeneration is preferred.
- The opportunity to work in an international, dynamic and motivated team.
- State-of-the art resources, including a 900 tank zebrafish facility.
- The possibility to join the international graduate school of Ulm University, iGradU.
- Payment and benefits according to the collective agreement TV-L 13.
