Postdoctoral position in organ morphogenesis and disease

Postdoctoral position in organ morphogenesis and disease at the  CABD, Seville (Spain). Latin American researchers are eligible.
In the frame of the opened call for participants in the Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowships (IIF), 2012 European People Program ( Deadline: 16 th August 2012):
http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/page/people?call\Identifier=FP7-PEOPLE- 2012-IIF A postdoctoral position is available in our laboratory to study cellular and molecular mechanisms of organ morphogenesis. We focus on vertebrate eyeformation as a model for epithelial folding. Using a combination of live-imaging and genome-wide approaches, and profiting from the experimental advantages of zebrafish and medaka as genetic systems, we investigate the fundamental question as to how tissues interpret morphogenetic tension during development and disease. Eligibility: You are eligible for the Marie Curie
program if you belong to a Cooperation Partner country (most  countries in Latin America), and you are in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least four years of full-time  research experience. Along with a competitive CV, experience in any of the following fields will be considered: developmental  biology, cell biology, live imaging and bioinformatics. The CABD belongs to the Spanish Research Council Network (CSIC) and is located at the Pablo de Olavide University (UPO) campus in  Seville, Spain. http://www.cabd.es/ If you are interested, please send urgently a letter of intent and your CV (reference
letters will be requested in a second stage) to jrmarmor@upo.es
