The group of Prof. dr. Rik Korswagen/ Dr. Matilde Galli currently has a vacancy for a Technician full time (38 hours/week) to work on: Cell cycle control in C. elegans Description of the project: This laboratory conducts research on cell cycle control in a multicellular organism, the roundworm C. elegans. Specifically, we are studying how and why certain cell types undergo different types of cell cycles in different tissues of the body. The technician will be involved in performing genetic, molecular…
The group of Prof. dr. Geert Kops/ Dr. Matilde Galli currently has a vacancy for a Postdoc full time (38 hours/week) to work on: Polyploidy in development and disease Description of the project: Polyploid cells, which contain more than two pairs of homologous chromosomes, are widespread across the tree of life. In our research group, we are interested in understanding how cell cycle alterations that occur during polyploidization are regulated in normal physiology, as well as how polyploidy can arise under…
