The Gene Expression and Morphogenesis Unit of Excellence María de Maeztu (GEM-DMC^2) at the CABD (Andalusian Centre for Developmental Biology), Seville, Spain is looking for an excellent and creative scientist to expand its research programs into biophysics, organ modeling and imaging.
Research at GEM aims at understanding the processes of decision-making in cell collectives that are responsible for the generation, maintenance and evolution of organ form and function. Research programs at GEM integrate analyses spanning from the genomic and subcellular to the organ and organismal levels. The current main areas of research at GEM are:
- Structure, dynamics and function of the genome.
- Genetic, epigenetic and signaling regulatory networks.
- Collective cell behavior and morphogenesis.
- Morphological evolution.
A three-year contract, with the possibility to apply for tenure on the third year. The start-up package includes a three-year postdoctoral position and a PhD position (co-supervised) plus extra funds for equipment.The appointment is expected to begin during January-March 2018.
