We are seeking a PhD candidate to join our EvoDevo lab in the University of Barcelona to study our favorite chordate model Oikopleura dioica, in which we are currently interested in heart development and 4D imaging of early embryo cleaving http://thenode.biologists.com/day-life-oikopleura-lab/lablife/" class="wiki wikinew text-danger tips">Click here for a tour “A day in our lab” posted in The Node.
We have also engaged a new EcoEvoDevo line investigating if the developmental mechanisms of marine embryos are ready to respond to climate change, including the effects of biotoxins derived from algal blooms. https://natureecoevocommunity.nature.com/users/174964-cristian-canestro/posts/38121-filling-the-gap-between-ecology-and-evolutionary-developmental-biology-evo" class="wiki wikinew text-danger tips">Click here for a tour on this new EcoEvoDevo adventure.
