Postdoctoral Position in Organoid Biophysics
We are offering a
in Organoid Biophysics.
Organoids are used more and more as disease and development models. Because they develop in vitro, they also offer an opportunity to observe morphogenetic processes live and interfere with them. What are the forces deployed by the cells to form lumen and ducts and to form folds? How do they act as a collective? How does the material properties of the environment affect this? How do different cell types emerge and what are the signals enabling self-organization? These are a few questions of interest to us, as examples.
PhD in biophysics, bioengineering, stem cell, cell or developmental biology and skills in quantitative biology and ideally imaging and image analysis. Some programing skills would be appreciated.
If you love…
• discussing the newest concepts that shake the scientific community
• learning about cutting edge techniques in the stem cell and organoid fields
• interacting with interdisciplinary teams
…then join this project, and the Dresden Physics of Life community!
