2 PhD student positions in genetics of vascular diseases
The Human Genetics lab, part of the de Duve Institute in Brussels, aims to discover the genetic variations that drive human diseases. The lab uses Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and bioinformatics to study patient samples and generates cellular and animal models to further dissect disease processes and test new therapies. It collaborates closely with clinicians and patients to provide viable and tangible knowledge-based improvements in health-care.
For the EU-MSCA-ETN project V.A. Cure, the lab invites applications for two Early Stage Researcher/PhD student positions entitled:
Identification of novel genes that cause Vascular Anomalies (ESR 1 and 2)
You will be part of a team of 14 ESRs working on the V.A. Cure project, which aims to uncover core mechanisms of initiation and maintenance of Vascular Anomalies with the final goal to establish novel therapeutic strategies. The project is funded in the frame of the EU MSCA-ITN programme.
You will work on a research project with the following objectives:
You will also take part in the international training programme of the network and participate in various networking and outreach events.
We are looking for a motivated student with a strong commitment to basic and/or translational research, who:
The successful candidate will receive an attractive salary in accordance with MSCA regulations for Early Stage Researchers. The period of employment is 3 years. Starting date: June – October 2019.
