PhD student (TV-L 13/65%, f/m/d)

"Molecular mechanisms of osteoblast plasticity during zebrafish regeneration"

The ability to regenerate lost body parts is one of the most fascinating phenomena in biology. In contrast to mammals and humans, some other vertebrates can completely regenerate their limbs/fins after amputation. Our lab is interested in unraveling the underlying cellular and molecular mechanisms. We have found that bone regenerates via de-differentiation of osteoblasts in the zebrafish. Cellular de-differentiation is a rare process in vivo, and little is known about its molecular regulation. Recently, we have shown that NF-kappaB signaling plays an unexpected role in the regulation of osteoblast de-differentiation (Mishra et al., Dev. Cell. 2020, doi:10.1016/j.devcel.2019.11.016). We now aim to further understand the biology of regenerative osteoblasts and the regulation of dedifferentiation using single-cell approaches.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, highly motivated scientist (f/m/d) who is dedicated to performing fundamental research.

We expect:

  • Training in developmental biology, molecular biology, cellular biology or related fields  
  • Enthusiasm for regenerative biology.
  • Excellent communication skills in spoken and written English.

We offer:

  • The opportunity to work in an international, dynamic and motivated team.
  • State-of-the art resources, including a 1000 tank zebrafish facility.
  • The possibility to join the international graduate school of Ulm University, iGradU.
  • Payment and benefits according to the collective agreement TV-L 13.

Further information about our lab can be found at www.uni-ulm.de/weidinger.

Applications including a CV, a statement of research experience and interests (max. 2 pages), and contact data for 2-3 references should be emailed to Prof. Dr. Gilbert Weidinger, gilbert.weidinger@uni-ulm.de until 31.7.2020.
