Job description

Up to 3-year postdoctoral position funded by the Belgian Excellence of Science (EOS) program to perform research in the framework of the MODEL-IDI (MOlecular mechanisms of cellular DEath and Life decisions in Inflammation, Degeneration and Infection), a research consortium made of biologists, immunologists, chemists and physicians that aims at performing fundamental research on the biology of cell death modalities and their consequences on the onset/progression of diseases.

The research group of Prof. Bertrand focuses on the elucidation of the molecular mechanisms regulating stress-induced cell survival/death, as well as innate immune/inflammatory responses, with a particular interest on the role of post-translational modifications, such as ubiquitination and phosphorylation. Research in the group is conducted at the biochemical, cellular and in vivo levels.

Recent publications from the group:

  • Dondelinger, Delanghe et al. Nature Cell Biology 2017.
  • Rojas-Rivera et al. Cell Death Differentiation 2017.
  • Ting and Bertrand. Trends in Immunology 2016.
  • Aguileta et al. Cell Death Differentiation 2016.
  • Dondelinger et al. Molecular Cell 2015.

Profile of the candidate

Applicants should have a PhD in biology, biochemistry, cell biology or a related subject. We are searching for an ambitious and dedicated candidate who is self-driven, highly motivated and able to work independently as well as part of a team. Previous experience on the study of cell death and/or inflammation is preferred.
