ULB CENTER FOR DIABETES RESEARCH - BELGIUM

Description

We have a position available for a Post-doctoral fellow in the group of “Inflammatory and Cell Death Signaling in Diabetes”, led by Prof. AK Cardozo at the ULB Center for Diabetes Research (ULB-CDR; http://ucdr.ulb.ac.be). The ULB-CDR is located at the Faculty of Medicine, Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB), Brussels, Belgium. The ULB is one of the European leaders in the biomedical research and our department has a highly dynamic research environment with teams dealing with the pathogenesis of type 1 (T1D) and type 2 (T2D) diabetes.

Our research is focused on the understanding of mechanisms leading to inflammation-mediated dysfunction and death of pancreatic β-cells in diabetes. Our strategy is to use genomics, proteomics and detailed signal transduction analysis in both in vitro and in vivo models of the disease. Our ultimate goal is to devise novel ways to prevent β-cell demise in diabetes. Selected publications: Meyerovich K et al (2017) Diabetes, 66: 2446; Fukaya M (2016) et al Molecular Endocrinology, 30:48; Meyerovich K et al  (2016) Diabetologia, 59:512; Allagnat F et al (2012) Cell Death Diff, 19:1836.

Profile

We are seeking a talented, independent and enthusiastic researcher with a PhD. A broad scientific knowledge and laboratory experience in cellular and molecular biology, as well as, rodent handling (e.g. breeding and genotyping transgenic and KO mice lines) are required. The candidate should have good command of spoken and written English. Experience with in in vivo rodent diabetes models is a plus.

Interested?

Applications including CV, list of publications, names of two references and statement of future interests should be sent to Alessandra K. Cardozo (akupperc@ulb.ac.be).

Duration: initial period of 12 months (possibility of renewal up to 3 years).
