Postdoctor in Hematopoiesis/bone Organ Engineering

Lund University is offering postdoctoral position in molecular biology. The initial contract for this position is 2 years. Citizens of any country are eligible to apply before the deadline: November 26, 2018.

The Faculty of Medicine is a part of Lund University, and is responsible for education and research within medicine and healthcare. Our academic programs are closely linked with the healthcare system and are firmly anchored in the faculty's strong research tradition. Our research spans a broad field within experimental preclinical research, near-patient clinical research and health sciences research. The Faculty of Medicine, with its 1,800 employees and 2,700 students in Lund and Malm, is a knowledge-intensive meeting place for students, teachers and researchers from all over the world.

Thelabis located within theBioMedicalCenterof the Faculty of Medicine and is part of Lund University (Sweden). With a direct connection toCopenhagenInternational airport (30min), Lund is an accessible city and a European hub for research.

ThelaboratoryforCell,TissueandOrganengineeringaims at deciphering the cellular & molecular mechanisms occurring during phases of bone formation/repair. Using state-of-the-art 3D culture systems, death-inducible human mesenchymal lines and tissue engineering protocols, we focus on studying processes of cartilage/bone/bone marrow establishment in human(ized) contexts.

Yourprofile:You are a freshly graduated PhD with a strong curiosity and ambition to discover. The laboratory will offer you robust training in human cellular biology, engineering of human cells/tissues/organs, as well as in manipulation of 3D culture systems. You will be most welcome in a young, friendly and dynamic environment.

Yourproject:You will exploit novel human death-inducible Mesenchymal cell lines, capable of forming mature hematopoietic bone organs (ossicles), through recapitulation of the endochondral ossification process. Using gain/loss of functions in these cells, you will generate "customized bone organs" with distinct molecular signature. You will subsequently analyze the functional organization of the hematopoietic compartment, and decipher the role of the modified gene/pathways.

Profilerequirements:International working experience, mouse and/or human hematopoiesis as principal background, less than 2 years of post-doctoral experience. Competitive research outputs and excellent speaking/writing English level.

Desirableskills:Flow cytometry, & standard cell culture techniques, ability to work with animals. Experience in molecular biology techniques is a plus (e.g. cloning, constitutive/inducible gene expression systems, lentivirus or Crispr-Cas9).
