Title 1: Investigation of actin dynamics and force transmission in isolated epithelial cells
Title 2: Investigating cell migration and aggregation of Killifish embryonic stem cells.
Supervisor: Dr. Andrea Ravasio – Laboratory for Mechanobiology of Transforming System.
Project 1: we are looking for a motivated student from bioengineering/biochemistry/biology or related disciplines to develop a one-year thesis project investigating the mechanobiology of epithelial cells and cell migration.
Project 2: we are looking for a motivated student from bioengineering/biochemistry/biology or related disciplines to develop a thesis project investigating the fundamental mechanisms of stem cell migration that drive morphogenetic processes in early development.
Methods: The selected student will work under the direct supervision of the Principal Investigator and will apply interdisciplinary approaches to perform world-calls investigation. Cell culture, high resolution microscopy, cell biology, magnetic tweezer, traction force microscopy, cutting-edge bioengineering and microfabrication.
Where: The project will be conducted in the new laboratories of the Institute for Biological and Medica Engineering (PUC – San Joaquin campus).
Requirements: Good communication skills with supervisor and other lab members. Great passion and dedication for science. Good knowledge of cell biology.
Application: Letter of interest (English or Spanish) to firstname.lastname@example.org
