TYPE OF CONTRACTOther
For a European Research Council (ERC) project, the research group of Dr. Lachmann is looking for a highly motivated Postdoc. The project will explore the development of human macrophages from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) and to develop disease modelling platforms. The major goal is to generate optimized macrophage populations, which can be used for new cell-based treatment strategies targeting e.g. pulmonary infections. The research project is imbedded into the overall research scope of the lab to explore the regenerative potential of iPSC-derived hematopoietic cell types.
We are looking for a PhD in the area of molecular biology, biochemistry, biomedicine, or a related discipline with strong interest in stem cells, macrophages and regenerative medicine. A strong theoretical background in iPSC and hematopoiesis is a must. Skills in handling iPSC, generation of macrophages and bioinformatics (e.g. SEURAT or MONOCLE) is desirable. Experience in animal experimentation including animal handling or cell transplantation would be preferable.
