Postdoctoral Position in Evolutionary Neuroscience

University of Helsinki – Institute of Biotechnology Helsinki, Finland One Postdoctoral position is available at the Institute of Biotechnology, University of Helsinki, in the laboratory of Dr. Nicolas Di-Poi. Our laboratory (http://www.biocenter.helsinki.fi/bi/di-poi/) is studying the development, evolution and regeneration of craniofacial and neural tissues in nonmammalian model organisms that reliably inform human diseases. This is a new and exciting research field, with the goal to provide an evolutionary context to the key signaling pathways of biological regeneration. The research projects include complementary state-of-the-art methods, including cellular biology, molecular embryology, developmental genetics and phylogenomics, and they offer an interdisciplinary environment for research training (see e.g., Science 339:78-81 (2013), EvoDevo 4:19 (2013), Nature 464:99-103 (2010)). The exact topic of research projects will be discussed in detail during interview. The successful candidate will…
