Two Postdoctoral Positions
Applications are invited for two postdoctoral-level positions on a collaborative project funded by the European Human Frontiers Programme. The collaboration is between the laboratories of Alfonso Martinez-Arias in the Department of Genetics at the University of Cambridge, UK, Kat Hadjantonakis in the Developmental Biology Program at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York and Jeremy Gunawardena in the Department of Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School in Boston. The project centres on analysing signalling and gene regulation networks in the pre-implantation mouse embryo and in mouse embryonic stem cells, using quantitative measurements, 4D whole-embryo imaging, microfluidic devices and mathematical modelling.
The first position is to work with Hadjantonakis in New York to develop a quantitative image analysis platform for 4D mouse embryo imaging. The successful applicant will need strong technical capabilities in live-cell image analysis, familiarity with software tool development with a focus on usability and the desire to work in close collaboration with experimentalists.
The second position is with Gunawardena in Boston to analyse mouse ES cells using microfluidic devices and modelling. The successful applicant will have experience studying mammalian cells in culture using quantitative experimental methods, an interest in exploiting microfluidic technologies and an ability to work with mathematical models of molecular networks.
Both positions will require occasional travel between the sites and an annual visit to Cambridge, UK. Interested candidates are asked to send a CV and the contact details of two referees to one of the two addresses below, along with a cover letter stating clearly why his or her background is appropriate for the corresponding position. The deadline for applications is 31 December 2010.
