Postdoctoral Research Associate – Developmental Biology Group
Department of Zoology
£27,319 – £35,646 pa
Limit of tenure: up to three years.
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research associate position in developmental neuroscience, working with Dr Matthias Landgraf and his group in the Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge. The position is available for up to three years, starting as soon possible.
Our research focuses on the development of neural networks. Specifically, we work with the motor system of the Drosophila embryo and are investigating mechanisms that specify the formation of synaptic connections.
We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with a strong background in cellular or developmental biology, genetics or neurobiology. The overall aim of the project is to explore the link between developmental lineages and neuronal function. The focus is likely to be on developmental mechanisms that underlie the generation of different neurotransmitter phenotypes and neuronal morphologies.
For informal enquiries about the position contact Dr Matthias Landgraf (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please quote reference: PF07835. Closing date: 21 March 2011.
Interview Date(s): Interviews will be held in the week beginning Monday 11 April 2011.
