Nasze wymagania

  • M.Sc. in Biology, Biotechnology or M.D. in Medicine
  • Good knowledge of English
  • Knowledge of Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, PowerPoint
  • Teamwork skills
  • Experience or knowledge in laboratory work (gel electrophoresis, PCR, RT-PCR, q-PCR, DNA/RNA/Protein extraction/purification, DNA cloning, western blot, cryo- and paraffin- sectionings, cell culture, FACS sorting, immunofluorescent /immunohistochemistry staining, in situ hybridization, mouse breeding/numbering/genotyping, some basic mouse surgeries, microscope techniques)
  • PhD student status (on the day of starting work in the project)

Zakres obowiązków

  • A Ph.D. student will work with different genetically modified mice models to investigate molecular signaling between hair follicle Stem Cells (HFSCs) and niche components during hair follicles regeneration cycle. Thus, a Ph.D. student will be responsible to perform experiments on mice to induce HFSCs activation or quiescence. He/she will be able to investigate changes in surrounding niche components during hair cycle changes on the level of single-cell as well as address their molecular characteristics. Therefore, he/she will be involved in FACS sorting of "live" single-cell from whole skin (including stem cells), with subsequent single-cell isolation for barcoding for single-cell transcriptomics (scRNA-seq) with samples sequencing by next-generation sequencing (NGS). He/she will be also involved in building a proper platform for in situ single-cell assay. As a part of the regeneration assay, he/she will also perform grafting experiments of HFSCs with different niche components. He/she will be involved in tissue analysis (e.g. immunofluorescent staining) with the use of microscopy techniques
