Position Senior Scientist / Postdoc
The LANE laboratory at the University of Geneva (Switzerland) is seeking two creative and highly motivated PostDocs.
1. In the context of an international collaboration investigating the development of mammalian spines, we are looking for a Postdoc with strong interest in developmental biology. The goal of the project is to characterise the convergent development of spines in tenrecs and hedgehogs, two spiny mammals belonging to highly-divergent lineages. The successful candidate will interact with a multidisciplinary team of physicists, computer scientists and biologists and will have access to state-of-the-art imaging and wet-lab facilities. The working language of the laboratory is English.

2. In the context of a highly multidisciplinary study funded by HFSP and investigating the development of skin colour patterns in snakes and lizards, we are looking for a Postdoc with strong interest in single cell transcriptomics. The goal of the project is to characterise the development of skin coloured cells (chromatophores) using sc RNA seq. The successful candidate will interact with a multidisciplinary team of physicists, computer scientists and biologists and will have access to state-of-the-art imaging and wet-lab facilities. The working language of the laboratory is English.

Laboratory Our projects are interdisciplinary, and aim at understanding the genetic determinism of skin colour patterns (especially in snakes and lizards) but also skin appendages (scales, hair, and spines) in amniotes. Besides standard molecular biology methods, we use confocal and light-sheet microscopy imaging, electron microscopy, mass spectrometry and deep sequencing.
Environment The University of Geneva (UNIGE) is highly-renowned for its research and is among the best universities in the world. Geneva is an international city occupying a privileged geographical situation.
Interested applicants are invited to send (combined in a single PDF document) a motivation letter with a short statement of research interests, a CV and two references (full address, incl. email and phone number) to: Dr. Athanasia Tzika (firstname.lastname@example.org).
