Default Post-doc position: Live imaging in the growth zone of Tribolium




Post-doctoral position in Evo-Devo
Live imaging in the growth zone of Tribolium

A post-doctoral position in comparative developmental biology is
available in the group of Michalis Averof, at the Institute of
Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (IMBB) in Crete. The position is
funded by the Marie Curie Programme CELLIMAGE. The aim of the project
is to establish live cell imaging approaches to study axis elongation
and segmentation in the beetle Tribolium castaneum.

We are looking for highly motivated candidates with interests in
developmental biology and imaging/microscopy. Applicants should have
a PhD or at least 4 years of graduate research experience. Experience
in developmental biology, microscopy, live imaging and/or image
analysis is desirable. Training in a range of molecular developmental
approaches will be provided in the host lab. Candidates may have to
undertake short periods of training in foreign centres of excellence,
such as the EMBL Advanced Light Microscopy Facility.

The working language of the group is English.
Lab info: [Only registered users see links. ]

Project
Segments are generated sequentially from posterior populations of
cells with stem-cell properties in arthropods, annelids and
vertebrates. Previous studies have described the role of these cell
populations in axis elongation and segmentation, but the role and
behaviour of individual cells within them (stem-cell properties, cell
fate decisions, lineage restrictions) has not been determined. This
is a major unsolved issue for the origin and evolution of
segmentation. We will combine transgenesis with live embryo imaging
to trace the behaviour of individual cells in the growth zone of the
beetle Tribolium castaneum.

Fellowship
- Starting date is between September 2008 and January 2009.
- The position is available for a period of 24 months.
- The salary will be approximately 25,000 Euro per year (net),
plus contributions for social security and income tax.
- Researchers will also be eligible for an annual travel
allowance and a one-off career exploration allowance of 2,000 Euro.

Marie Curie eligibility criteria
- Candidates of all nationalities may apply.
- Candidates must have at least 4 and no more than 10 years
(full time equivalent) of research experience after graduation.
- At the start of their fellowship, researchers may not have
resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc) in
Greece for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to
the appointment.
- Greek nationals may apply only if they can provide evidence
that they resided and carried out their main activity (work, studies,
etc) in a third (non-EU) country for at least 4 of the last 5 years
immediately prior to the deadline.

Applicants should send their enquiries/application to Michalis
Averof, by email ([Only registered users see links. ]). They should also ask two
referees to send letters of recommendation to the same electronic
address. Applications will be accepted until 1st May 2008, but
applicants are encouraged to make enquiries as early as possible, to
allow time for discussion of the project.
