OFFER DESCRIPTION

OFFER DESCRIPTION

We are looking for a post-doc to join our team for 1.5 years for our work in projects with organs on chips and extracellular vesicles. The project is aimed to develop PDMS-free chips with integrated sensors focusing on lung on chip and gut on chip. The models are used to test extracellular vesicles (EV) as drug delivery vehicles and research microbiota - host communication mechanisms. Therefore, a large portion of this work will be done using BSL2 and BSL3 equipment at Latvian Biomedical Research and Study Centre and 650+ m2 ISO9001-accredited cleanroom facilities allowing microfluidic device fabrication at facilities of Institute of Solid State Physics.

Cellbox Labs (https://www.cellboxlabs.com/) is one of the top biotech startups from Latvia that develops unique organ on chip technology that enables to create more accurate in-vitro models.

Job responsibilities

  • Functional device experiment design and execution.
  • Lung in chip and gut on chip functionalization with stable cell lines, primary cell lines and organoids differentiated from patient derived iPSC.
  • Viable, anaerobic patient derived microbiota cultivation within gut on chip and analysis.
  • Therapeutic extracellular testing within lung on chip.
  • Thorough experiment documentation and report preparation.
  • Writing scientific publications and present results in international conferences.
  • Support, supervision and mentoring of PhD students.
  • Work closely together with engineering team.

Job requirements

Essential

  • PhD in a field related to use of organ on chip technology or similar technology obtained not more than 7 years ago.
  • Demonstrated expertise in innovative organ on chip applications.
  • Strong research background in at least one of the following: microfluidics, different in vitro platforms, cell biology, molecular biology.
  • Experience in work with stable cell lines, primary cell lines, iPSC and organoids.
  • An ability to work in a fast-paced, cross-functional group environment.
  • Ability to manage multiple assignments effectively in a quickly evolving environment.
  • Must be eligible to work and travel in EU without restrictions.

Desirable

  • Experience with iPSC reprogramming and differentiation
  • Previous experience with microbiota within gut on chip is a plus.
