Full Time
A Swiss National Science Foundation funded postdoctoral fellowship is available in the Department of Biomedicine at the University of Basel to study the molecular mechanism of brain development and neural stem cell fate determination. The project will be carried out under the supervision of Prof. Verdon Taylor.

Your position

Our research interest is to unravel the molecular mechanisms that control mammalian brain development and stem cell differentiation. The project is primarily to look at novel aspects of Notch signaling and its targets.

Your profile

We are looking for highly motivated candidates with experience in molecular biology and transgenic mouse models, and a solid background in either biochemistry and/or epigenetics and transcriptional regulation. Experience with chromatin immunoprecipitation, retroviral vectors, cell transplantation and primary cell cultures of mammalian neural stem cells would be an advantage.

We offer you

The lab has extensive experience with conditional genetics, lineage tracing and mouse models of brain development. We exploit a variety of state-of-the-art technologies, including mouse genetics, fluorescent-activated cell sorting, transcriptome analyses, and bioinformatics.
