Hubrecht Institute – Utrecht Science Park – Netherlands

The group of Prof. Eva van Rooij at the Hubrecht Institute currently has a vacancy for a highly motivated and talented postdoc:

Postdoc  fulltime (38 hours/week)

To work on: Single-cell sequencing of the healthy and diseased heart

Description: Recent developments in RNA amplification strategies provide the opportunity to use small amounts of input RNA for genome-wide sequencing. Recently we were able to obtain a single-cell gene expression signature from both healthy and diseased cardiac cell types. Applying this analysis allows us to identify changes in cell type composition and transcriptome heterogeneity across cells of the same type.

The candidate for this project will work with this method to study changes in cardiac cell types after ischemic injury to identify novel secreted factors or membrane receptors that are relevant for cell-cell interactions during disease progression. Mouse genetics will be used to study the functional relevance of any newly identified factors.

Requirements: We are looking for a highly motivated, inventive, and flexible Postdoc that works well independently as well as with others. The candidate should have a PhD degree with a proven publication track record. Additionally, the candidate should be experienced in working with rodents and have a strong interest for cardiac biology. Written and oral fluency in English is essential.

Duration: For the duration of one year with a possibility to extend after positive evaluation.

Salary: According to “CAO-Nederlandse Universiteiten” (CAO-NU), salary scale negotiable, depending on age and experience scale 10 excluding 8% holiday allowance and an 8,3% year-end bonus. We offer an extensive package of fringe benefits.

Location: Utrecht Science Park, the Netherlands.

Information: For additional information please contact Prof. E. van Rooij e.vanrooij@hubrecht.eu or visit our website https://www.hubrecht.eu/nl/onderzoekers/van-rooij-groep/
