The Laboratory of Computational Biology (Stein Aerts lab) at the VIB Center for Brain & Disease Research, and the KU Leuven Center for Human Genetics, is seeking a highly motivated postdoc to study the regulatory code underlying neuronal identity, using Drosophila as model system.
You will combine fly genetics, single-cell transcriptomics, and single-cell epigenomics to discover and characterise gene regulatory programs of specific subpopulations in the brain, and study how neuronal and glial cell fates change during ageing and neurodegeneration.
- PhD in Life Sciences, Bio-engineering, Bioinformatics, or similar,
- A Strong scientific track record
Desirable but not required:
- Experience with Drosophila genetics and bioinformatics are a plus.
- A versatile and challenging job with very diverse contacts in a world-class research environment operating at an international level
- Various opportunities to broaden your expertise
- A competitive compensation package based on expertise and experience
- Financial support is available for at least 2 years. However, the successful candidate is encouraged to obtain a personal fellowship (Marie-Curie, EMBO, or National funding organizations).
- Starting Date: as soon as possible
