H13017—Cell, Developmental and Integrative Biology

Contact:

Mentor: Jianbo Wang, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Dept. of Cell, Developmental, and Integrative Biology, MCLM 310, 1530 3rd Ave. South, Birmingham, AL 35294, Telephone: (205) 996-9594 E-mail: j18wang@uab.edu


A postdoctoral position is available to study functions of the Wnt and the planar cell polarity (PCP) signaling pathways in mammalian morphogenesis and human diseases. The current focus of the lab is to use a series of mouse Wnt and PCP mutants to understand the function of these two pathways in neural tube closure, heart development, bone formation and polycystic kidney disease. We are also combining genetic approaches with live imaging to study the cellular and molecular mechanisms of the mammalian PCP pathway.
Application Requirements: Recently obtained Ph.D. or equivalent degree, with experience in molecular and cellular biology or genetics. Experience in embryology and/or histology is a plus. E-mail CV and list of references to: j18wang@uab.edu
