The DeSimone laboratory in the Department of Cell Biology at the University of Virginia seeks to hire a highly-motivated Postdoctoral Research Associate interested in exploring the importance of mechanical forces in the patterning and morphogenesis of Xenopus early embryos. The DeSimone lab has a long-standing interest in mechanisms of cell adhesion and adhesion-dependent cell signaling, and the involvement of these processes in regulating cell and tissue movements, gene expression and cell fate decisions using the frog as a model system. Our research utilizes multiple approaches including live cell imaging, gene-editing, biochemistry and cell biology, and biomechanics. We are looking for a skilled cell and developmental biologist with high enthusiasm for science who will contribute positively to the multidisciplinary, collaborative atmosphere fostered within the DeSimone lab and the Department of Cell Biology.
