PhD positionMolecular toxicology
Your tasks In the Institue of Chemistry and Bioanalytics (School of Life Sciences, FHNW), we are looking for a bright and enthusiastic PhD student in the area of molecular toxicology. The main focus of the 4-year project will be to develop and implement state-of-the-art, advanced cell culture systems including microfluidics and Organ-On-A-Chip technologies for the investigation of disease models in the context of Alzheimer’s disease using in vitro models. The working place will be on the new FHNW Campus Muttenz just outside Basel, Switzerland.
Your profile The successful applicant will have experience in mammalian cell culture, preferably using iPSCs. Know-how in microfluidic systems would be a plus. He/she will be proficient in performing standard cell-based assays (cytotoxicity, qPCR, immunofluorescence) and is willing to develop and implement new approaches in a collaboration with skilled bioengineers and neuroscientists in our institute and in collaborating universities. Interest in data analysis and interpretation in the context of biological relevant pathways and experience in confocal microscopy would be an asset. Fluency in English (oral and written) is a must, German and/or French is an advantage. The PhD position will be in the context of a collaboration with the University of Basel.
