Job description

The research team of Prof. van Loo and Prof. Esther. Hoste has a vacancy for a highly motivated PhD student to investigate the role of different cell death modalities in keratinocytes and their implications for injury repair and skin tumour formation.

The successful candidate will be responsible for the study of the impact of cell death on different stem cell niches in the skin, using mouse models of skin inflammation, wound healing and tumour formation in combination with cell-based assays on cells of human and mouse origin. Stem cells are fundamental mediators of tissue biology. In this project, we will make use of advanced confocal microscopy, flow cytometry, mouse transgenesis, CRISPR-Cas9 genome-wide screening approaches and spatial transcriptomics to understand how cell death affects the behaviour of neighbouring stem cells in the skin.
