The Thompson lab at University College London is looking for a postdoctoral researcher to study the evolution of multicellularity:
The Thompson lab, based at University College London, is seeking a Research Fellow to work on understanding how gene network heterogeneity affects the evolution of multicellular development.
Recently, we found that cell-cell variation in cell cycle position facilitates symmetry breaking during development, as it primes cells to respond to different differentiation cues (Gruenheit et al, Developmental Cell, 2018).
The Thompson lab studies cellular differentiation, evolution of social behavior, and functional genomics in the social amoeba (cellular slime mold) Dictyostelium discoideum.
