    Rating: 0.0/5 (0 votes cast)

Applications are invited from motivated postdoctoral fellows who are interested in studying fundamental mechanisms in neurogenesis.

The main focus is to understand the molecular mechanisms that control the progression of stem and progenitor cells to mature neurons using the developing olfactory epithelium as a model system. The applicant will work primarily on chick models, but also analyze mice mutants.

A two-year (one + one year) postdoctoral fellowship is available funded by the Kempe foundation and M. Lundqvist foundation, with possibility of further extension. The lab is located at the Umeå Centre of Molecular Medicine (UCMM), Umeå University, Sweden. UCMM is an interdisciplinary department with basic medical science and developmental biology research.

Umeå University is ranked the fourth best place to work outside of the United States for postdoctoral researchers in life sciences (The Scientist).

The ideal candidate should be a Ph.D with a background in neuroscience, preferentially also in developmental biology. Technical experience with vertebrate embryonic model systems, electroporation, molecular and cell biology methods and imaging is preferred. The applicant should be proficient in written and spoken English.

Please include:

  1. Short cover letter (maximum 1 page) with a description of previous appointments and research experience.
  2. Curriculum vitae (publication list, technical expertise and contact information for three references).
  3. Copies of relevant qualifications.

Send your application to ucmm[at] marked 2010LG16 latest 16 May, 2010.
