Job description – Her / his Job


The research team of Prof. Mathieu JM Bertrand has a vacancy for a highly motivated postdoctoral scientist with research experience in autophagy, cell death, and/or inflammation. 


The successful candidate will be responsible for studying mechanisms of autophagic degradation and its interplay with inflammation and cell death modalities, using cells of human and murine origin and mouse models of inflammatory diseases. This research is part of the iBOF ATLANTIS project (Autophagy in inflammation and inflammatory disorders, from basic insights to experimental therapy). ATLANTIS brings together scientists with complementary expertise in the fields of autophagy, cell death, inflammation, angiogenesis, and drug screening/medicinal chemistry. 


The applicant should be highly motivated and passionate about driving and performing research and associated laboratory tasks and be able to work independently. The position can be started immediately.
