Location: Inselspital – University Hospital Bern / Switzerland

Our portfolio company Scailyte is offering in collaboration with the University Hospital in Bern a postdoctoral research position in the laboratory of Endometriosis and Gynecological Oncology.

Position objects - Requirements

Scailyte and the University Hospital Bern are looking for an independent and strongly motivated researcher with a PhD or MD/PhD degree, and experience in NGS and single-cell sequencing. Additional expertise for research projects involving human subjects, gynaecology, pain mechanisms, epithelial to mesenchymal transition or inflammation would be highly desirable. The ideal candidate is an adaptable team-player and has excellent communication and organizational skills. In this exciting role the candidate will have the unique opportunity to drive a discovery project addressing an enormous medically unmet-need using cutting edge genomic technology combined with machine learning based data analytics.

As post-doctorant you will take part into a project aiming to develop a non-invasive single-cell molecular in vitro diagnostic test for endometriosis. This work will consist mainly into preparation of single-cell suspensions, construction of gene expression libraries and analysis of the immune profile and transcriptome at the cellular level using the 10X genomics platform.

This project will provide multiple opportunities for collaborations and cross-disciplinary scientific exchanges. Meanwhile, the candidate should have excellent communication skills (particularly in English) and should be familiar with the constraints related to translational researches, in particular regarding deadlines. Aptitude to drive and maintain intra and inter team collaborations will be highly appreciated.

An interesting aspect for your carrier, you will have the possibility to develop your own research program taking advantage of our large biobank and of the expertise of our physicians.
