Deadline: 05 Jun 2022

The project involves the use of the human gastruloid system (a human embryonic stem cell model of early human development; see PMID: 32528178) developed in the host lab, to create an in vitro mimic of the hematopoietic stem cell niche. The project is a collaboration with three other groups in Barcelona.

The tasks and responsibilities of the post will be the following:

1. Culture and growth of human Embryonic and induced Pluripotent stem cell lines.
2. Maintenance of a stem cell line bank
