A two-year postdoctoral position is available at the laboratory for stem cell-based development headed by Dr. Nicolas Rivron. The laboratory is located at the MERLN institute for technology-driven regenerative medicine (Maastricht) and at the Hubrecht institute for developmental biology and stem cell research (Utrecht). The laboratory has access to first-class facilities for microscopy, single cell sequencing and microfabrication, and provides investigators with the opportunity to pursue innovative, multidisciplinary research at the interface between stem cell biology and quantitative science.

Our goal is to investigate the flow of information between the blastocyst cells using stem cell-based blastoids. These studies will be underpinned by multidisciplinary approaches combining genetics engineering , high-content screening of molecules, and single cell sequencing.
You must hold a PhD (or equivalent experience) in a relevant life sciences or biomedical discipline and have a strong interest in stem cells and early development. Extensive experience in embryonic stem cells and molecular biology techniques is essential. A proven publication record, with at least one first author publication in a peer-reviewed international journal is also essential. Expertise in cell signaling and genetic engineering would be an advantage.
You must also have the ability to develop and apply new concepts, have a creative approach to problem solving, and be able to write clearly and succinctly for publication.
Fixed-term, 2 years
