Job description

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.

Job profile

  • You hold a degree of Master of Science in biochemistry and biotechnology, Master of Science in biology, Master of Science in biomedical sciences, Master of Science in pharmaceutical care or drug development, Master of Science in bioengineering sciences, or an equivalent degree.
  • 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.

  • Previous experience with mouse genetics and behavioral studies, electrophysiology, and complex molecular biology, is strongly recommended.
  • You have a strong interest in or previous experience with academic and / or project-based research and services.
  • Teaching experience or participation in extra training, conferences, etc. is a plus.
  • You have excellent communication skills, particularly in the English language.
