Postdoctoral Position: Bioengineering organoid morphogenesis, KU Leuven, Belgium.

Updated: 9 months ago
Deadline: 15 Jan 2020

You are a developmental biologist interested in directing your passion for understanding how cells assemble into complex, ordered structures towards building and manipulating synthetic organoid model systems with our laboratory’s tools and quantitative approach. Candidates must have a PhD degree in developmental biology, stem cell biology, biophysics or related. The candidate is expected to have a strong background in molecular biology and at least one of the following areas of expertise: quantitative imaging and image analysis, CRISPR genome engineering, mouse or chick tissue grafting.

This project is part of 3DMuSyc, a collaborative multidisciplinary initiative at KU Leuven focusing on the role of mechanics in organoid biology, which brings together research groups from the Leuven Stem Cell Institute and the Departments of Mechanical Engineering and Chemistry.

The success of this project will require active interaction with experts ranging from cell and molecular biology, stem cell technology, to cell and matrix mechanics, biosensor and biomaterials development, as well as advanced microscopy and image analysis.
