Postdoctoral Researcher

Updated: 4 months ago

Your position

The goal of the project is to investigate how cells regulate their life span. Research in the Pieters' laboratory aims to understand the regulation of cell population homeostasis by members of the coronin protein family within the immune system as well as other physiological systems (see e.g. Pieters et al, Nature Reviews Immunology, PMID 23765056 ; Vinet et al., Mol. Biol, Cell, PMID 24403600 , Jayachandran et al., Immunity, PMID 30611611 , Mori et al., Science signaling, 34932374 ). We use a combination of innovative in vitro and in vivo approaches that cover the entire spectrum from molecules to cells to organisms to unravel the mechanisms underlying the establishment and maintenance of cell population homeostasis. The successful candidate will be able to utilize and develop innovative in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo state-of-the-art experimental systems to study how cell population homeostasis is regulated to achieve proper functioning.

Your profile

The successful candidate should hold a Ph.D. degree and have a strong background in biochemistry, cell biology and molecular biology and ideally be familiar with both in vitro and in vivo techniques; Furthermore, the candidate should exhibit team spirit, be highly motivated, self-driven and creative.
