The Center for Integrative Genomics of the University of Lausanne invites applications for a PhD Student position in the research group of Dr Sophie Croizier. The Croizier lab works on the role of guidance molecules in the formation of hypothalamic circuits controlling energy and glucose homeostasis. For more details, please consult the current website of the group: https://www.unil.ch/cig/en/home/menuinst/research/dr – sophie croizier.html
Expected start date in position : 01.09.2021 / to be agreed Contract length : 1 year, renewable, maximum 4 years Activity rate : 85% Workplace : University of Lausanne, Center for Integrative Genomics (CIG), https://www.unil.ch/cig/home.html
The successful candidate will work on the lab project to determine the role of Ephrin83 in the excitability of POMC neurons and its role in type 2 diabetes etiology. This work will rely on multidisciplinary approaches including microscopy/image analysis, stereotaxic surgeries, electrophysiology, and mouse physiology.
In order to complete our team, we are looking for someone with the following skills :
Experience in histological approaches
Experience in mouse physiology (glucose homeostasis)
Authorization for animal experimentation is advised.
Dynamic, and enthusiastic student with a master thesis in life science, interested in working in a highly interactive environment.
Excellent command of oral and written English
What the position offers you
We offer a nice working place in a multicultural, diverse and dynamic academic environment. Opportunities for professional training, a lot of activities and other benefits to discover.
We are offering a 4 year graduate program focused on the study of Genetic Diseases and Cancer through the use of emerging approaches of biomedical research, such as molecular genetics, genomics, advanced cell biology and gene therapy. Students will receive a full scholarship for the duration of the PhD. The selection of the students will be exclusively on the basis of merit, the course is characterized by a strong intertwining of teaching and research, community life and a great openness towards international exchanges.
Discovery and interpretation of human genomic variation contributing to micronutrient deficiency disorders
We are seeking a PhD student to work in a genomic medicine project in Dr. Castellano’s group using population approaches. The aim of the project is to understand the genetic architecture of micronutrient deficiencies. That is, to characterize the number, age and type of genetic variants, their population frequencies and the magnitude of their contribution to the risk of micronutrient deficiency or toxicity in humans today. Such deficiencies have been pervasive in human history and may have resulted in old and common genetic variants contributing to disease risk.
