Postdoc Human Pancreatic Islet Cells

Leiden University Medical Center

Leiden, Netherlands

Your position

We are looking for a postdoc for our Department of Internal Medicine/Nephrology where you will join the Islet lab that develops basic and clinical research programs involving human pancreatic islet cells. Are you the candidate we are looking for?

What you do

You will be working on a project focusing on investigating the cellular plasticity (i.e. capacity to change identity) of human pancreatic islet cells in the context of type 1 diabetes. This project will be run in collaboration with Dr Raphael Scharfmann (INSERM, Paris, France). In addition, you will be involved in the isolation of human pancreatic islets for transplantation within a GMP environment contributing to the current clinical islet transplantation program in our institute. Islets and non-islet tissue that cannot be used for transplantation can often be used for research purposes.

What we ask

You are a motivated and dedicated candidate who holds a PhD degree in biomedical sciences (or equivalent). Preferrably, you have experience in (primary human) cell culture, RNA and protein work (Q-PCR, RNA-sequencing, immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry), cell imaging techniques (confocal, live imaging), and in particular in bioinformatics (use of R) and big data analysis (of (single-cell) transcriptomics, ideally). We are looking for someone who is flexible and can work well together.
