A postdoctoral research position is available for studying cell shape changes and rearrangement and underlying cytoskeletal regulation during organ formation in the laboratory of SeYeon Chung at Louisiana State University. We use the genetically tractable Drosophila salivary gland as a model system to understand how a flat sheet of epithelial cells becomes a three dimensional tubular structure during development. The project will employ a combination of fly genetics, advanced imaging and image analysis.
