  • The 30/10/2013, Petition for the support of the University of Crete
    Message posted by Jacques Epelbaum


    Dear colleagues,

    I would appreciate it if you read the following preable and sign the petition for the support of the University of Crete,  


    Petition Background (Preamble):

    Under the latest austerity measures, the Greek Government has decided to suspend 1349 administrative staff from 8 Universities, including 49 from the University of Crete. The University provided objective evidence that the staff are already working under severe strain: currently, 360 staff members have to serve two campuses in two towns (Heraklion and Rethymnon), 5 Schools with 17 Departments, 494 Faculty Members, 18,756 undergraduate and 1,181 Masters students and 1,124 Doctoral candidates. Included in the 360 staff members are also lab technicians that support research activities in the UoC, as well as teaching assistants. Furthermore, the severe consequences on the professional performance of the staff that are threatened with suspension should be considered.

    As faculty of the University of Crete, we have tried every possible way to convince the Government to reconsider its decision. One more attempt is to ask you to sign the petition mentioned above, in an effort to rally international support to our cause.

    If you agree, please add your name to the petition, mentioning your title and the institution where you are affiliated. Also, please circulate it among colleagues in your institution.

    Support to University of Crete

  • The 06/05/2013, Postdoctoral Fellowship

    Investigator:             Susan Wray

    Affiliation:                 Cellular and Developmental Neurobiology, NINDS, NIH

    Position Open:         Postdoctoral Fellowship

    Lab Website:            http://intra.ninds.nih.gov/Lab.asp?Org_ID=42



    Projects focus on:


    Cell lineage, Neuronal Migration and Axonal Targeting. Projects focus on differentiation and migration of GnRH cells and olfactory axon outgrowth during development. Prenatally, GnRH neurons originate in the nasal region and migrate on olfactory axons into the brain. Current projects examine: 1) lineage of the GnRH cells, 2) intracellular signaling that controls cell movement and corresponding changes in cytoskeletal elements, and 3) combinatorial influence of guidance factors involved in migration of these cells into the forebrain; mechanisms common to neuronal migration as well as mechanisms specific to the GnRH system.


    Mechanisms underlying Neuronal Activity. Projects focus on the mechanisms underlying neuronal activity using GnRH neurons in vitro and in vivo. In vivo, GnRH neurons, spread throughout the forebrain, release GnRH in a pulsatile fashion to control reproduction. In explants, primary GnRH neurons continue to release in a pulsatile fashion and show synchronized calcium oscillations. Projects utilize the GnRH system to study molecular and cellular properties of neuronal activity (individual cells and neuronal population dynamics) at different developmental, metabolic and/or reproductive states. Candidate with experience in calcium imaging and/or electrophysiology preferred but not mandatory.



    A fellow opening is available for either project. Laboratory uses multidisciplinary approaches: cre/lox mice, transgenic lines, imaging, nasal explants, videomicroscopy, calcium imaging, electrophysiology, immunocytochemistry, in situ histochemistry, single-cell PCR, and subtractive cDNA screening.


    Candidates should have training in one of the following: Neurobiology, Developmental biology, Neuroendocrinology or Molecular biology.


    Please e-mail a letter describing your interest and long-term goals, a curriculum vitae and three letters of reference to:
