The Leeboratory seeks to elucidate the genetic circuitries that drive cell identity programmes and regulate cell-fate specification. We use stem cell culture model systems to understand the guiding principles of cell fate choice.
You will work on a project in which we will combine our expertise in genetic screening platforms with 3D differentiation regimes. The project will aim at delineating the molecular underpinnings of lineage segregation and specification. Therefore, we will capitalize on oru extensive experience in stem cell biology, CRISPR-screens and haploid ES cell technology, in combination with 3D differentiation models.
We are looking for a postdoctoral scientist who shares our enthusiasm for curiosity driven science and for investigating the key mechanisms that guide mammalian development. Training and supervision will be provided throughout the project, but we also expect a high level of drive and independence.
We are looking for a highly motivated colleague with a proven track record in creative thinking and technical competence, and excellent verbal and written communication skills. The Leeboratory offers a stimulating environment and access to state of the art technology, including a cell-aggregate sorter.
The successful candidate will hold a PhD and will have significant expertise in mammalian cell culture, genome-engineering and stem cell biology. Experience with peri-implantation embryology, gastrulation and genetic screens will be an advantage. The position is funded for an initial period of two years, with the possibility of extension. You will be expected to apply for and supported in the acquisition of personal fellowships.
If you want to join our team and you also have a friendly and co-operative attitude, then we are looking forward to receiving your application, including a CV and a one-page motivation letter. Please send your documents to: email@example.com
Interviews will be held on a rolling basis and as soon as a suitable candidate is found, the position will be filled.
