Postdoctoral Position: The Francis Crick Institute
The Francis Crick Institute
|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.
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.
