The control of cell polarity in C. elegans

The ability of cells to polarize underlies the most basic biological functions such as motility and response to external challenges, but also the formation and maintenance of tissues within a multicellular organism. The importance of cell polarity is underscored by the fact that cell polarity is essential for animal development and is perturbed in disease states such as cancer.
PolarNet establishes a multidisciplinary, intersectoral training and research programme to study the principles of cell polarity. PolarNet brings together academic and private partners from 7 European countries, and funds 15 PhD students.
As part of PolarNet, 2 Ph.D. positions are available in the group of Dr. Mike Boxem at Utrecht University in The Netherlands. The research in Dr. Boxem’s group will focus on the development of cell polarity in larval epithelia of the nematode C. elegans. Details of the two projects can be found on the PolarNet website:

We offer:
•        2 exciting individual research projects, each of which includes secondment opportunities at an academic and private network participant.
•        Scientific courses, conferences and summer schools, transferable skills training (writing, presenting, intellectual property), and personal development workshops and coaching.
•        Rigorous standards of training and supervision, which includes establishment of a ‘Training and Supervision Agreement’ and yearly progress meetings.
