A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available immediately to join the group of Matias Simons in Freiburg, Germany. The group investigates the mechanisms controlling planar cell polarity and membrane trafficking using cell culture, Drosophila melanogaster and mouse as experimental models [EMBO Journal, advance online publication; Current Biology 2010 Jul 27;20(14):1269-76, Nat Cell Biol. 2009 Mar;11(3):286-94, Annu Rev Genet. 2008;42:517-40, Nat Genet. 2005 May;37(5):537-43]. We are particularly interested in the role of these processes in human genetic diseases such as polycystic kidney and lysosomal storage diseases. The lab is funded by the …

The Sars International Centre is a partner of the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), and a department of Unifob, affiliated with the University of Bergen. The Centre is focused on basic research in marine molecular biology, developmental biology and evolution, through genetic and comparative studies of invertebrates and vertebrates.
The research group headed by Dr. Di Jiang is offering two postdoctoral positions. The group focuses its research on morphogenesis during animal development, more specifically on the tube formation process in ascidian Ciona intestinalis notochord. (829)

Angus Davison’s lab is looking for a post doc to work on snail chirality A deep-seated theoretical problem has stoked a burning interest in understanding the symmetry-breaking event during development – how is one side of an organism consistently distinguished from the other, given that the side that is called ‘right’ is essentially arbitrary? Although most prior research has concentrated on models such as the mouse, chick and frog, the coiling or chiral variation of the pond snail Lymnaea may be crucial in coming to understand asymmetry. This …

The role of PDZ scaffold CASK and CaMKII signalling in synaptic plasticity and learning.
Biotechnology & Biological Sciences Research Council Grant
Start Date: From 1 Feb 09 (Period on Project: 36 months)
The successful candidate will be engaged in full time research into molecular mechanisms of synaptic plasticity and learning using Drosophila. The project will involve:
(1) Calcium imaging and optical manipulation of activity of neural circuits underlying learning
(2) Learning assays (Olfactory-shock conditioning)
(3) Mutagenesis (P-elements and transgenes)
(4) Immunohistochemistry and various imaging techniques (239)

The main aim of this postdoctoral positon is to study the molecular mechanisms responsible for transcriptional activation of the Drosophila embryo after egg fertilization. More specifically this work will involve the characterization of a previously isolated collection of mutants (Pimenta-Marques et al., 2008), identification and characterization of the mutants specifically defective for transcriptional activation, and functional characterization of the relevant gene(s). The goal is to better understand how is transcription initiated de novo in a spatially and temporally controlled manner after egg fertilization. (224)
