The Leeboratory explores key regulatory mechanisms that determine and maintain cell identity during development. For this we use genetics and biochemistry in stem cell culture model systems, including haploid embryonic stem cells.
We have an open position for a Master’s student in the lab.
Your project will involve embryonic stem cell culture, CRISPR/Cas based genome engineering as well as molecular biology, and will aim at elucidating the genetic circuitries that regulates cell fate decisions. You will be able to participate in the design and implementation of genome wide screens to identify central regulators of differentiation processes.
We are looking for smart and motivated students who share our enthusiasm for curiosity driven science and for investigating the key mechanisms that guide animal development. Training and supervision will be provided throughout your project, but we also expect a high level of independence and drive.
If you also have a friendly and co-operative attitude, then we are looking forward to receiving your application, including a CV and a cover letter stating why you want to work in our group. Please send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The application deadline is Feb 28, 2017. More details on the general research topics of the lab can be found at the webpage of Martin Leeb’s group.
