Postdoctoral Position: The Francis Crick Institute


The Francis Crick Institute

Date Posted: 07/19/2021
City: London
Country: United Kingdom
Primary Category: Research
Type of Position: Postdoctoral Research


Description and Details:

We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow to join our lab. This is a fully funded position for 4 years. The overarching goal of our lab is to address how multicellular complexity (form, fate and function) emerge during embryonic development. We are an interdisciplinary lab focused on decoding the design principles of organ morphogenesis across length scales using a well-suited vertebrate model system – zebrafish heart, a system highly amenable to various genetic and optical manipulations.
We have generous core-funding support and access to state-of-the-art facilities and technology platforms including Advanced light microscopy, High throughput sequencing, Bioinformatics and Image analysis help desk. The Francis Crick is a modern, world class biomedical research institute in central London. The Francis Crick and the participating organizations (UCL, Imperial College London and King's College London) offer a highly inclusive, collaborative and thriving research community with many career development opportunities. The Francis Crick runs an exceptional postdoc training program, designed to prepare the postdocs for their future career with many trainings and career development opportunities. 


The suitable candidate will use advanced microscopic techniques, image analysis, genetic/optical manipulations, biophysical approaches and collaborate with theoreticians to understand how morphological and molecular complexity emerges during heart development. Candidates with a strong background in advanced confocal and/or light sheet imaging, image analysis, zebrafish genetics and a good understanding of the mechanics of tissue morphogenesis and/or heart development are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate should be keen in pursuing collaborative research, should have excellent communication skills and should be a good team player.
