Postdoc position. Heart development

University of North Carolina. Conton Lab.

Fully funded postdoctoral positions are presently available in the Conlon Lab whose studies focus on identifying the molecular networks that are essential for early heart development and how alterations in these networks lead to congenital heart disease. For these studies, we use a highly integrated approach that incorporates developmental, genetic, proteomic, biochemical and molecular based studies in mouse, Xenopus and stem cells. Recent advances and projects of interest in the Conlon lab include studies that define the cellular and molecular events that lead to cardiac septation, those that explore cardiac interaction networks as determinants of transcriptional specificity, the mechanism and function of cardiac transcriptional repression networks and, the regulatory networks of cardiac morphogenesis.

Job Requirements: Candidates should have recently obtained or be about to obtain a Ph.D. or M.D. in a field of biological science and should have a strong publication record. Outstanding and highly motivated candidates should apply by email to Dr. Frank L. Conlon and include a CV/resume, three references and description of your specific interest in our research programs.

Postdoc Positions in Chile

VISUAL D Postdoctoral Positions 2016

VISUAL-D, a recently formed research initiative funded by the Chilean government for the visualisation and manipulation of signal and forces in developing tissues, is seeking proactive candidates with experience in developmental biology and/or morphogenesis, ideally (but not required) in zebrafish, willing to create new projects that associate developmental biology/morphogenesis with mathematics/computing/physics in a trans disciplinary scientific environment. Applicants must be about to finish or have a Ph.D. (awarded within the last 4 years) and a demonstrated track record of publications. To apply, applicants should send a full CV and a short statement of research interests to Prof. Miguel Concha ( by July 1st 2016.For more information, please download the pdf file (
