Postdoctoral Position: Mechanisms of Organoid Formation

A postdoctoral position is available in the group of Prisca Liberali to study mechanisms of organoid formation and self-organization. Our laboratory is located at the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research (FMI) and we develop new imaging technologies combining live cell imaging, high-content screening, quantitative analysis and modelling to understand how cells communicate and give rise to self-emergent spatially organized cell fate commitment.

The successful candidate will examine the molecular mechanisms and the mechanics involved in organoid self-organization. We are looking for a highly motivated individual with experimental or computation background for diverse projects. Some familiarity with image analysis and quantitative data processing is welcome but not necessary. Excellent communication and organization skills, and the ability to work as a team member are expected. A very competitive salary and access to state-of-the-art research facilities will be provided.

The FMI, affiliated with the University of Basel and the Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research, is an international institute aimed at understanding the basic molecular mechanisms of health and disease. It is situated in Basel, Switzerland, a city in the centre of Europe offering an outstanding scientific and cultural environment.

Applications should be submitted electronically at

and include a motivation letter, CV and names and email addresses of two referees.
