The Bosmans laboratory at UGent Faculty of Medicine is looking for a motivated candidate who is interested in building bridges between basic medical science and clinical observations and who wants to make an important contribution to uncovering the mechanisms underlying the function of the somatosensory nervous system.
In particular, we are interested in sensory perception processes such as pain and itch that relate to ion channel function in the peripheral and autonomic nervous system.
This project requires in-depth knowledge of various principles from neuroscience and biophysics, and will benefit from approaches such as electrophysiology, (genetically-modified) mouse husbandry, molecular biology, cell transfection and culture, imaging, and tissue manipulations.
The candidate is expected to interact with basic scientists from various backgrounds and to function as an ambassador for this ambitious project as well as to engage in a broader context in the neuroscience community in Ghent and beyond.
You will spend your time (approximately 4 years) on academic biomedical research in preparation of a doctoral dissertation.
For diplomas awarded outside the European Union, a certificate of equivalence (NARIC)
must be submitted. The degree requirements need to be fulfilled at the start of your appointment.
