We are looking for a motivated, ambitious and collegial person interested in joining us as a postdoc to pursue projects centered around host-pathogen interaction in human stem cell derived macrophages. Prior exprience with stem cells or high throughput microscopy is required. Please contact Eva directly with your CV or with queries if you are interested.
This project will dive into regulation of host immunity to infection or infectious stimuli using macrophages derived from human stem cells. More emphasis will be put on deciphering molecular signaling or cellular response pathways than the actual stimuli/infection under study. This will require efficient gene editing approaches for stem cell derived macrophages (CRISPR, siRNA) and the ability to work with high throughput analysis (image based) as well as handling large datasets (RNASeq, proteomic or metabolomic analysis). Thus I believe a person with an interest in using human stem cells to study intracellular mechanisms is best suited for this post.
