|Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research associate to participate in a highly interdisciplinary research project aiming to advance our understanding of gastrulation, an essential stage of embryonic development. Specific goals are to characterise and understand the interplay between cell and tissue-scale mechanical forces, cell differentiation, and cell behaviours during gastrulation, using the chick model system. The project is a highly interdisciplinary collaboration between the Universities of Dundee, Oxford and University College London, at the life science-physics interface and involves a combination of in-vitro and in-vivo experiments and cell and tissue-scale modelling.|
