Job description – Her / his Job
The research team of Prof. Mathieu JM Bertrand has a vacancy for a highly motivated postdoctoral scientist with research experience in autophagy, cell death, and/or inflammation.
The successful candidate will be responsible for studying mechanisms of autophagic degradation and its interplay with inflammation and cell death modalities, using cells of human and murine origin and mouse models of inflammatory diseases. This research is part of the iBOF ATLANTIS project (Autophagy in inflammation and inflammatory disorders, from basic insights to experimental therapy). ATLANTIS brings together scientists with complementary expertise in the fields of autophagy, cell death, inflammation, angiogenesis, and drug screening/medicinal chemistry.
The applicant should be highly motivated and passionate about driving and performing research and associated laboratory tasks and be able to work independently. The position can be started immediately.
About the lab
The VIB-UGent Center for Inflammation Research (IRC) aims at unravelling the mechanisms of immunity and inflammation for better prevention and therapy of human chronic disease. Several high-end core facilities support and improve our research activities: microscopy, flow cytometry, transgenesis, cell culture, recombinant protein technology, single cell.
