Postdoctoral Fellowship in Neural Developmental Biology

Applications are invited from motivated and creative individuals who are interested in studying fundamental mechanisms of neuronal migration and axon guidance.

The main focus of our research is to understand molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the development of neural circuits using the embryonic spinal cord as a model system.

The laboratory is located at the Umeå Center for Molecular Medicine (UCMM), Umeå University, Sweden. UCMM is an interdisciplinary department, which focuses on questionsin basic medical sciences and developmental biology and provides an interactive modernenvironment with state-of-the-art core facilities.


Individuals with a background in developmental biology, neuroscience, molecular and cell biology or related discipline and with a interest in developmental neurobiology are encouraged to apply.

Technical experience with vertebrate embryonic model systems, molecular and cell biology techniques, biochemistry and imaging is an advantage although training will be given. The successful candidate will have a recent or imminent Ph.D. in a relevant discipline and be proficient in written and spoken English. The fellowship is currently funded for up to two years.
Application for the fellowship should include:

1. A short cover letter (not more than 1 page) to include a description of your research experience and suitability for the position.

2. Curriculum Vitae including: publication list, technical expertise, names and contact information for three referees.
Please refer to number 2010SW28 and submit your application by 30th September 2010 to eval(unescape('%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%75%63%6d%6d%40%75%63%6d%6d%2e%75%6d%75%2e%73%65%22%3e%75%63%6d%6d%40%75%63%6d%6d%2e%75%6d%75%2e%73%65%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b')).
