The Developmental Biology Unit studies the development of multicellular organisms. Research in the unit covers all levels, from the cellular to the whole organism, and is highly interdisciplinary, combining a wide range of approaches and innovative techniques, with special emphasis on quantitative and real-time imaging. Research in the unit is firmly embedded within the overall EMBL research environment, with extensive in-house collaborations and support from world-class services, including the gene core, transgenic, metabolomics and mass-spectrometry core facilities.
We are seeking outstanding candidates using model organisms to address fundamental principles of multicellular development across the entire spectrum of developmental biology. Complementary approaches, including simplified systems, such as organoid and stem cell systems, are also welcome. Candidates with strong background and research using theoretical approaches are also encouraged to apply. There is the possibility to hire two group leaders in the present call.
Further information about the position can be obtained from the Head of Unit Anne Ephrussi ([email protected]).
Interviews are planned for 19, 20 & 21 December 2016.
Information on Group Leader appointments can be found under http://www.embl.org/gl_faq.
An initial contract of 5 years will be offered to the successful candidate. This is foreseen to be extended to a maximum of 9 years, subject to an external review
