Postdoc Position to Study the Cell-cell Interactions within the Liver Macrophage Niche

VIB

Ghent, Belgium

Your project

We would like to understand the cell-cell interactions within the liver module (Kupffer cells, Endothelial cells, Stellate cells and Hepatocytes). How do these cells talk to one another? What cell-cell circuits are present in the healthy liver? Which receptors are involved and what transcription factors do these receptors induce? What functional gene modules are these transcription factors controlling? What is the homeostatic function of these cells within the liver module? Can we use the knowledge of homeostatic cell-cell circuits to boost tissue regeneration?

Profile

We are seeking highly motivated and dynamic individuals with a strong passion for macrophages and a formidable team-spirit. Previous experience in immunology, developmental biology, cellular biology, hepatology, organogenesis, single-cell technologies and/or epigenetics are strongly recommended.

  • PhD in immunology
  • Confocal Microscopy, Flow Cytometry, Genomics skills
  • Experience with mouse models
  • Strong interest in bio-informatics

Desirable but not required

  • Experience in epigenetics, single-cell technologies or bio-informatics.
  • Experience in cell culture systems.
