Postdoctoral position

Updated: 5 months ago

Your position

The Handschin group is interested in investigating the molecular, cellular and systemic processes that control skeletal muscle plasticity in health and disease. We are currently looking for a motivated and well-trained postdoc to study spatio-temporal multicellular interactions in this process, specifically between the different cell types in muscle, but also extending to the motor unit and upstream regulatory circuitries. To do so, state-of-the-art techniques, including single cell and single nucleus RNA sequencing (scRNAseq and snRNAseq, respectively), will be combined with analysis methods to infer spatial information, temporal trajectories, and cell-cell interactions. This project is embedded in a larger effort of the team to understand muscle plasticity in exercise, aging and muscle diseases.

Your profile

Applicants should have a PhD or MD/PhD degree with a strong background in molecular and cell biology. Moreover, extensive experience in experimental work on metabolism, mouse physiology, skeletal muscle biology, transcriptional regulation, systems approaches or bioinformatics is ideal. Selection will furthermore be based on the educational background, motivation, independence and creativity of the applicant. Knowledge of English is required, German a plus, but not necessary. Starting date by arrangement. The position is funded, and salary according to institutional guidelines.
