Graduate Assistant in Microbiology: Switzerland
The Department of Fundamental Microbiology,University of Lausanne offers a PhD position in single cell analysis.
The group uses budding yeast as a model system to understand how cells respond to their environment. They develop fluorescent biosensors to study the dynamics of signal transduction by microscopy.They believe that these quantitative single cell measurements can offer new insights into the regulation of signaling cascades. The project is highly interdisciplinary combining wet-lab experiments, live-cell imaging and bioinformatics. 50% of the activity will be dedicated to personal research. The other 30% will be for the research of the group and practical courses.
- Applicants should have a Master in biological sciences or related discipline with previous experience in yeast biology, signal transduction or fluorescence microscopy.
- Basic knowledge in programming is an asset.
- The candidate should have a good command of English and be highly motivated to learn new quantitative biological techniques to study signal transduction.
