Position: Postdoctoral researcher in Neuroimmunology
Institution: University of Luxembourg
Location: Luxembourg City, Luxembourg
Duties: Area: Neuroimmunology of Parkinson’s disease; organoid based in vitro disease modeling The Developmental and Cellular Biology Group (led by Prof. Jens Schwamborn) at the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine utilizes human stem cells for modeling and experimental treatment of neurodegenerative disease. Projects in the lab are at the interface of systems biology and bio-medical research. In particular, we aim on developing novel, complex in vitro models that are specific for the human brain. Our main disease model is Parkinson’s disease. In this particular project, we are looking for a postdoctoral researcher who is interested in using patient specific induced pluripotent stem cells for the generation of cellular models, including human patient specific midbrain organoids and microglia. These models shall be used for high content imaging based autophagy analysis and drug screening
Requirements: For this project we are looking for a candidate who hold a PhD with a strong background in human stem cell research, additionally proven experience in either high content imaging or drug discovery is necessary. Experience in computational image analysis and immunology/neuroimmunology is a strong plus. A successful candidate should be willing to take leadership and responsibility for this demanding project. We are looking for highly motivated candidates who share our passion for research, are interested in acquiring new skills and wish to be part of an international team
