The position of a postdoctoral researcher (m/f) is available in the Pole of Pharmacology and Therapeutics (FATH; https://uclouvain.be/fr/instituts-recherche/irec/fath/), Institute for Experimental and Clinical Research (IREC; https://uclouvain.be/en/research-institutes/irec), UCLouvain, Brussels. The candidate will work on new mechanisms of signalling through the water channel, Aquaporin-1, in the context of myocardial remodeling (based on recent publication in: Sci Transl Med. 2020 Oct 7;12(564):eaay2176. doi: 10.1126/scitranslmed.aay2176. PMID: 33028705)
The work will include investigation of structure/function relationship based on AQP1 structural data (e.g. from cryo-EM analysis) and validation studies using targeted mutational analysis in cellular systems.
Applicants must hold a PhD in Biology/Biochemistry (or an equivalent scientific degree), be highly motivated, independent and senior enough to organise the work of technicians and biological or medical doctoral students and integrate themselves into a team. An excellent background in molecular biology is required, as is fluently spoken English. A background in bioinformatics is an advantage.
Ideally, three to five publications as first author in international journals would support the candidate's application.
The candidate will work in an international and dynamic scientific environment with cutting-edge equipment in a WELBIO-funded lab (https://welbio.org/cms/c_11740011/en/welbio) within the IREC.
The position is initially for 2 years (renewable) and payment starts at approx. 33,000 euros (net salary) per annum.
