Published Deadline Location

Job description

The focus of the project will be to reveal the regulatory logic of cellular decision making in the context of animal development. Specifically, we seek to better understand how precursor cells commit to a specialized cellular fate and how this fate is maintained. To address these questions, we will perform detailed quantitative analyses of native cells during their differentiation trajectory in the model organism C. elegans. The project will incorporate the latest technologies in transcriptome, epigenome, and proteome analysis, and will be carried out in close collaboration with specialists in C. elegans genetics (van den Heuvel, Utrecht University), single-cell analysis (van Oudenaarden, Hubrecht Institute), proteomics (Vermeulen, Radboud University Nijmegen) and computational modeling (ten Tusscher, Utrecht University).
