VISUAL-D is a scientific initiative funded by CONICYT (Chile) that consolidates a scientific path and international collaborative network to create a cutting-edge, in vivo integrated multi-scale and trans-disciplinary scientific research team aimed to reveal mechanistic insights into the role played by genes and mechanical forces in the origin and shaping of developing tissues. VISUAL-D uses transparent embryo models and state-of-the-art technology that allow the direct visualisation, analysis and manipulation of genetic signals and mechanical forces in developing tissues.
We are seeking proactive candidates with experience in developmental biology and/or morphogenesis, ideally (but not required) in zebrafish. Applicants must have a PhD and a demonstrated track record of publications. The appointment begins in April 2018. Topics include cell migration and early morphogenesis in novel fish models and the interplay of tissue dynamics and signalling in developmental stem cell niches. Experimental research will be conducted at the laboratories of Dr Miguel Concha (U-Chile; www.ontogenesis.cl) and Dr Julio Amigo (PUC-Chile; http://biologia.uc.cl/es/cuerpo-academico/profesor/78).
HOW TO APPLY?
Candidates must send a full CV, a short statement of research interests (max of 1 page) and 2 references to Prof. Miguel Concha (firstname.lastname@example.org), before March 9th, 2018.
