The Baccarini lab focuses on the functional consequences of signaling by intracellular kinase pathways. We have recently discovered that a negative feedback mechanism emanating from activated ERK is required to terminate ERK and AKT signaling during hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) activation, thus maintaining the balance between HSC self-renewal and differentiation and preventing exhaustion of the HSC compartment (Baumgartner et al., Cell Stem Cell 2018).
We are looking for
an enthusiastic scientist at the postdoctoral level who will join the team investigating hematopoietic stem cell fate decision using single cell analysis of signaling pathways combined with single cell RNA-seq.
a talented and motivated individual with a PhD degree and documented research accomplishments in (Stem) Cell Biology and/or Cell Signaling (first author papers or preprints). The ideal candidate will have experience in HSC isolation, culture and development, with cell sorting and FACS analysis, will be able to work independently and as part of a team, and will have strong organizational, written and verbal communication skills.
Join us for
great quality of science and great quality of life - the Vienna Biocenter Campus is one of the main research hubs in Europe. We are supported by cutting edge technology services provided by both in-house Facilities and the Vienna BioCenter Core Facilities. Our working language is English, both in the labs and in the on-campus day care center. We are located near the center of Vienna, ranked as the city with the best quality of life in the world for 9 years in a row.
Send a curriculum vitae detailing current research interests, previous educational and research experience and contact details for three references to Manuela Baccarini (email@example.com).
We will start reviewing the applications immediately and we will continue until the position is filled.
