The research group 'Laboratory of Regulatory Evolution' at the Department of Environmental Sciences, University of Basel is welcoming applications for a fully funded postdoctoral position (https://evolution.unibas.ch/tschopp/index.htm ).
The goal of this project is to elucidate the gene regulatory logic of convergent cell fate specification in different parts of the developing vertebrate skeleton. You will be using a range of functional single-cell genomics technologies (single-cell RNA-seq, single-cell ATAC-seq and spatial transcriptomics), in combination with traditional experimental embryology, evolutionary-comparative approaches across species, and in vitro cell culture models.
We are looking for a motivated and talented candidate with a PhD degree in Molecular Biology or a related field. Candidates are expected to have a strong background in developmental and cell biology and/or functional genomics. At least rudimentary bioinformatics skills in R are required, plus a willingness to expand upon these. Additional experience in single cell functional genomics analyses, statistics and computational data analyses are a big plus, as is an interest in evolutionary-comparative questions. We are looking for a collaborative and organized person with good communication skills and the desire to work in an interdisciplinary and international environment. Fluency in spoken and written English is a prerequisite.
We offer a dynamic and interactive research environment with state-of-the art research facilities, good research funding and internationally competitive salaries. The initial contract will be for 2 years, and can be extended by a maximum of 4 additional years (2+2). The position is available from 1.1.2023, or later upon agreement.
The University of Basel (www.unibas.ch ) is the oldest university in Switzerland, located in one of Europe's most important life science hubs at the border between Switzerland, France and Germany. Courses to improve hard and soft skills, as well as career development opportunities are offered by the University.
Application / Contact
Please email your application as a single PDF file, including a letter of motivation detailing your research interests and experiences, a complete CV and publication record, and contact details of at least two references to Patrick Tschopp (email@example.com ). Review of applications will begin mid-October, and will continue until the position is filled.
