A 3-years PhD student position is available in the group of Patricia Rousselle in the Tissue Biology and Therapeutic Engineering Unit at the Institut de Biologie et Chimie des Protéines (IBCP), Lyon. The topics of research developed will focus on: i) Analysis of the biological properties of a 3D-skin equivalent model, ii) mechanisms involved in skin repair upon treatment with matrix biomimetic- scaffolds in animal models. The LBTI (www.lbti.fr) is well equipped for cell biology, molecular biology and biochemistry and belongs to a larger campus (SFR BioSciences Gerland – Lyon Sud (US8 / UMS3444, https://www.sfr- biosciences.fr/), giving access to state-of-the-art core facilities in areas ranging from animal models to protein science such as animal facilities, bioimaging, biomolecular analysis, proteomics, structural biology and production and analysis of proteins. Working languages of the laboratory are English and French.
We are looking for enthusiastic, self-motivated individuals with a background in tissue and cell biology and Imaging techniques. Know-how in cell culture and microscopic techniques is recommended. Excellent adaptability to team-work in different environments and mobility is absolutely required.
