This position is one of many Postdoc and PhD positions available as part of the gravitational programme Innovative Microscopy And Guidance of cells In their Native Environment IMAGINE!
IMAGINE! is an interdisciplinary programme combining cell, organoid, and tissue biology, as well as chemical and optical cell manipulation and analysis to study cell behaviour in development and cancer, and targeted drug delivery. Participating institutes are based throughout the Netherlands in Utrecht, Amsterdam, Delft, Rotterdam, Nijmegen, and Eindhoven. For more information on the individual positions, please visit our website imagine-microscopy.nl.
You will be embedded in the new interdisciplinary Department of Biomedical Science, which includes 5 around 180 scientists in the fields of Cell Biology, Tumor Immunology, Biochemistry, Physiology, and Bioinformatics. The department develops the teaching of medical, biomedical and natural science students, and offers MSc programmes and Postdoc programs through the Graduate School. The department maintains a high-profile international research programme, and is strongly interdisciplinary and collaborative across research disciplines.
The Friedl team together with the Research Technology Centers Microscopical Imaging (MIC) and the Preclinical Animal Imaging Centre (PRIME
) have a long-standing experience in the field of advanced microscopy of cancer cell invasion and metastasis in 3D tissue culture and in live mice. They focus on multi-scale analysis of cell-matrix interactions during single-cell and collective cell migration, proteolytic tissue remodeling during invasion and physical and molecular mechanisms tissue guidance of cell invasion. Particularly the development and use of in vivo-inspired 3D tissue culture models in vitro including defined in vivo models for intravital multiphoton microscopy of inflammation and tissue remodeling after implantation of biomaterials, which will be included and further developed in this project.
The group of Peter Friedl
has long-lasting expertise in the training of Postdocs, as well as PhD, MD and MSc students, with several Postdoc now working as independent group leaders across the world.
As a Postdc, you will be integrated in the Radboud University Postdoc community, providing an excellent multidisciplinary environment for scientific and personal development.Radboudumc
