Early stage researcher (Cell biology, microscopy, hepatology)

Please see here: https://euraxess.ec.europa.eu/jobs/276851

We are seeking a flexible, ambitious PhD candidate with an interest in human liver biology who will engage in a multi-disciplinary research project focused upon understanding the functions of hepatic sinusoidal endothelial cells in health and disease. The project has an emphasis on optimizing cell preparation and isolation procedures to permit assessment of uptake of scavenger ligands and antibodies using novel high speed, high-resolution microscopy techniques. The successful applicant will further develop our tissue and organ perfusion methodologies and human liver organ culture platforms, to allow us to understand the endocytic capabilities of sinusoidal endothelium in healthy and cirrhotic livers. The project will provide opportunities for close collaboration with partners from within our network, and the candidate will be part of training programs within the DeLIVER project. This will provide experience and skills in cutting-edge interdisciplinary research related to novel, high-resolution optical methods and human biology. The ideal candidate will have experience in human cell culture and isolation, along with confocal and/or super-resolution imaging and should be used to working as part of a multi-disciplinary team. The project involves a series of secondments to academic and industrial partners in Europe and worldwide.
