Post-doc position available!
We have recently found that cobalt protophorphiryn IX (CoPP) strongly induces endogenous expression of G-CSF (A. Szade et al. EMBO Mol Med 2019). The aim of this project is to identify cells and transcription factors that lead to the production of G-CSF and other mobilizing factors. Our long-term goal is to identify molecular and cellular mechanisms driving the response to hematopoietic stress and expression of mobilizing cytokines.
The project involves generation of transgenic mice, single-cell RNA sequencing, imaging and a lot of multiparameter flow cytometry :)
Ideal candidate has:
· a PhD in Life Sciences (according to the new NCN rules – must be awarded by the institution other than Jagiellonian University)
· experience with mouse work
· a strong background in cellular biology and immunology
· the ability to organize, plan and document experimental bench-work
· excellent technical skills
· very good English skills
Highly appreciated experience with:
· advanced state-of-the art flow cytometry
· next-generation sequencing analysis including RNA and DNA seq and similar assays as well as bioinformatics analysis and computational modeling based on such data
· molecular analysis of small cell numbers, including single cell analysis
We offer the possibility to work in an international, open-minded team, participation in seminars/conferences and the NCN post-doc salary.
