Postdoctoral Research Associate-Washington University School of Medicine, Department of Developmental Biology

Posted 12/13/2021

The Solnica-Krezel and McNeill labs are looking for a joint postdoctoral fellow for a collaborative project on the mechanisms of vertebrate planar cell polarity and morphogenesis. The project will explore the relation of Ds/Fat cadherins and core planar polarity genes in sculpting the vertebrate body plan.  High resolution imaging, genome editing and in vivo proteomics approaches in mouse and zebrafish will investigate the cell polarity and migration in neural and mesenchymal tissues during embryogenesis.
