A position for a postdoctoral fellow (2 years of funding) is available in the group of Renee van Amerongen at the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands to study mammary gland development.
Mammalian development and tissue homeostasis are complex and dynamic biological processes. Focusing on Wnt signal transduction, our research aims to understand the genetic and epigenetic mechanisms that control gene activation in the mammary gland. We are now recruiting a postdoctoral fellow that fits one of the following profiles:
- You are a ‘dry-lab’ candidate with extensive and proven expertise in complex bioinformatics analyses and an interest in analyzing large datasets, who can complement our wet-lab skills.
- You are a ‘wet-lab’ candidate with proven expertise in embryonic stem cell targeting and the generation of genetically engineered mouse models.
You will be part of a young and growing research team that uses a combination of in silico, in vitro and in vivo approaches to under- stand normal (stem) cell behavior, with the ultimate goal of trans-lating principles from developmental and stem cell biology to regenerative medicine and breast cancer research. We are embedded within the section of Molecular Cytology at the Swammerdam Institute for Life Sciences and collaborate with other groups in the institute, but also with other labs in the Netherlands (e.g. at the Netherlands Cancer Institute) and abroad. We have strong ties to the field of mammary gland biology (active member of the ENBDC), as well as to the Wnt-signaling community.
Details of the job description (including tasks and requirements) and the appointment are available at the University website, which is also where you can submit you application.
