We are looking for a Postdoctoral researcher in the Biochemistry department at the Cardiovascular Research Institute Maastricht (CARIM) for a research project funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO Vidi 91716421).
The goal of the project is to disclose underlying signaling mechanisms for the role of platelets in recurrent cardiovascular events, such as myocardial infarction and stroke, and to find new reference points for antithrombotic medication.
The project involves a local team of platelet biologists, physicians and a drug design specialist with ample input from (inter)nationally-based biomedical engineers and proteomics specialists. Research techniques include advanced microscopic imaging, experimental (athero)thrombosis studies, histology, in silico drug design, proteomics, specific platelet function tests and a vessel-on-a-chip approach using microfluidics.
Responsibilities of the postdoc will include: carrying out a significant part of the daily supervision of two PhD students, writing manuscripts, setting up and analysing platelet proteomics studies, and (aiding in) developing a custom-made microfluidics device.
The candidate holds a PhD degree with background in thrombosis and haemostasis or vascular biology. We are particularly interested in candidates with hands-on experience in proteomics or chemical and biomolecular engineering.
The candidate must have good verbal and written English communication skills (C2 level according to the Common European Framework of Reference) and a strong publication record in high-impact journals.
The candidate is highly motivated, holds a solution-oriented mindset, and is a true team player.
The terms of employment of Maastricht University are set out in the Collective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities (CAO). Furthermore, local UM provisions also apply. For more information look at the website https://www.maastrichtuniversity.nl/support/um-employees
