Responsibilities/Job Description

In the interface between bioimaging, proteomics and artificial intelligence our research aims to define the spatiotemporal organization of the human proteome at a cellular and subcellular level, with the goal to understand how variations and deviations in protein expression patterns can contribute to cellular function, cell type specificity and disease.

We seek a postdoctoral researcher to join our efforts to understand the proteome composition of primary cilia and how they contribute to control signaling and dynamic cell states in single cells. The work will involve immunoassays, mass spectrometry, confocal microscopy and image analysis. These methods may involve integration of multiplexed imaging, AI driven microdissection, transcriptomics and proteomics. The work will be performed in close collaboration with the Human Protein Atlas project (www.proteinatlas.org) and can include work with several different types of human cell and tissue samples.
