Postdoctoral position in RNA biology and immune cell development

Updated: about 1 month ago
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 15 Nov 2020

An exciting opportunity for a Postdoctoral Fellow is available within the RNA and Stem Cell Biology group of Dr. Cristian Bellodi at the Division of Molecular Hematology of the Lund Stem Cell Center, Lund University, Sweden. Our laboratory focuses new post-transcriptional facets of gene expression control in stem and cancer cell at a molecular, cellular and organismal level. We recently uncovered a critical role for RNA modifications in protein synthesis and stem cell function (Guzzi et al., Cell 2018), and new research opportunities to study the role of RNA modifying enzymes during normal and malignant immune cell development are available in the lab.

The successful candidate will work on specific projects using unique genetic models along with biochemical methods and high-throughput sequencing (HTS) approaches including ribosome profiling, iCLIP-seq and single cell-seq. He/she should be interested in the clinical application of basic research for the development of novel therapeutic strategies to treat hematological cancers.

About us
Our laboratory provides a vibrant and international research environment consisting of postdocs, technical staff, PhD and master students with common interests in RNA and stem cell biology. Our group is part of the Division of Molecular Hematology embedded within the Lund Stem Cell Center (LSCC), an internationally ranked research center within the strategic areas of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine at Lund University, Scandinavia’s largest institution for education and research.

Essential Skills and Requirements
We are looking for highly motivated basic and clinical researchers with a recent PhD (preferably less than 3 years) and proof of productive research. Candidates should have significant experience with mouse work (handling, breeding, surgery, dissection, transplantation), advanced flow cytometry and molecular biology. A background in mammalian hematopoiesis, immunology and stem cell biology is highly preferred. Applicants are expected to work independently as well as collaborate within a team. Excellent verbal and written English communication skills are required.

To Apply
Applications including (1) cover letter, (2) curriculum vitae and (3) contact information of three professional references should be emailed to: cristian.bellodi@med.lu.se .
