Research projects addressing any fundamental principles of development will be considered. Applications involving quantitative biology approaches, analysis of cellular and molecular processes at the single cell level, stem cells and their ability to form organs/tissues or the role of mechanical forces in development will be particularly welcome.
About the Developmental Biology Unit (IBPS-BD): The IBPS-BD hosts 16 research groups with a commoninterest for the study of embryonic development, meiosis and fertilization. Our research draws on a widevariety of model organisms, including C. elegans, Drosophila, zebrafish, Xenopus, chicken, mice andplants. The complementarity of scientific projects, technical skills and model organisms provides asynergistic and dynamic research environment.
Applicant’s profile and position: The candidates should have an outstanding track record and are expected to obtain independent funding through grant application processes from national and international funding agencies and/or charities.
