A postdoctoral research fellow position is available in the Laboratory of Regenerative and Movement Biology at the Department of Health Sciences and Technology (D-HEST) in ETH Zurich.
The primary scientific interest and direction of the lab is to study the regenerative and therapeutic potential of stem cells, with emphasis on pluripotent and skeletal muscle cells. Specifically, our group is interested in developing stem cell-based therapeutic approaches to treat muscle-associated diseases. The proposed position will explore means to generate therapeutically-competent muscle cells by utilizing mouse, rat and human pluripotent stem cells via tissue complementation.
The work will involve extensive use of molecular biology and tissue culture techniques including: generation of induced pluripotent stem cells carrying genetic reporters, gene editing, chimera formation, tissue engraftment and in vivo muscle stem cell transplantation assays.
Interested applicants should have a recent PhD degree in Biology, Biotechnology, Genetics, Biochemistry or equivalent research related field in addition to a strong background in molecular biology assays. Ideally, these will include experience with mammalian cell culture techniques, genomic editing, gene delivery by retro or lenti-viruses, PCR, qPCR, immunostaining, Western blot and FACS analysis. Experience in stem cell or skeletal muscle biology is preferred. Prospective candidates will be part of an international research team and expected to be highly motivated, passionate about science and collaborative.
