PhD Position in Spine Regeneration and Axial Skeletogenesis - Munster, Germany

in the research group of Prof. Stefan Schulte-Merker (https://www.medizin.uni-muenster.de/icor/research/) 
 
We offer an exciting international research environment to study the genetic and cellular mechanisms that govern spine formation and spine regeneration. By using genetic approaches (zebrafish, mice) combined with high-resolution confocal live-imaging we are investigating the mechanisms of spine formation and regeneration at cellular and molecular resolution.
 
The PhD project will involve the generation of tissue specific and inducible knock-out models in zebrafish and state-of-the-art in vivo imaging approaches to dissect genetic pathways governing osteoblast behaviour during development and regeneration.
 
We are looking for highly motivated candidates with a solid background in genetics, molecular biology and cell biology. Experience working with zebrafish and mice is desired but not mandatory. Fluency in spoken and written English is required.
 

Postdoctoral Position - King's College, London, UK

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the laboratory of Dr. Fiona Wardle at King’s College London, UK to work on a 3 year BBSRC-funded research project.

The project will study the transcriptional regulation of endoderm formation in zebrafish, using genomics data (e.g. 4C-seq, ChIP-seq), generation of zebrafish transgenics, CRISPR/Cas9 genome modification and GRN modelling.

The post starts in autumn 2018. More information and details of the application process can be found here: https://www.hirewire.co.uk/HE/1061247/MS_JobDetails.aspx?JobID=79402.

Two post-doc positions in skeletal muscle stem cell environment

The team of B. Chazaud at Institut NeuroMyoGene at the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, CNRS, INSERM, at Lyon, is seeking to fill 2 postdoctoral research scientist positions in the area of skeletal muscle regeneration and homeostasis. One of the main goals of the Chazaud laboratory research programs is to understand the role of the close environment on muscle stem cell fate in normal regenerating skeletal muscle as well as during muscle diseases.

Requirements
• PhD (or near PhD completion) in biological or biomedical sciences or post-doc scientists with no more than 2/3 years post-doc experience.
• Scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals and presentations at scientific conferences. Published evidence of aptitude for high quality research is essential.
• A strong background in the following fields:
Profile 1 – exploration of the role of extracellular matrix in skeletal muscle biology (PI: Dr. B Chazaud). The candidate must have an experience working in the biology and biochemistry of extracellular matrix. A background in skeletal muscle biology is a plus, but not mandatory.
Profile 2 – exploration of the role of myofiber contraction on skeletal muscle environment (PI: Dr. R Mounier). The candidate must have an experience working in the biology and physiology of skeletal muscle, with a reference to in vitro/ex vivo muscle cell contraction.

Terms and conditions
The post-doc researchers will conduct and nurture the research programs in close connection with the PI, until the submission of high-quality articles. Positions are open from the beginning of 2018. Salaries are available for 3 years, renewed every year according to progress, however the post-doc researchers are expected to be competitive and to be able to obtain their own independent financing.

How to apply?
Please send to the PI: 1) a cover letter highlighting research interests, goals and previous scientific contributions; 2) a CV listing education, publications, meeting presentations and any other skills of interest; 3) at least 2 reference contacts.
