Postdoctoral researcher (m/f/d) in the area of Bio-engineering reproductive tissues

At Ferraz lab we have focused our research on developing in vitro models of reproductive tissues to understand maternal-gamete/embryo communication, aiming at improving the quality of IVF embryos and to promote the rescue of genetic material.

Within the current funded Sofja Kovalevskaja Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, we are seeking for a Postdoc researcher to work on developing and validating female reproductive organs-on-a-chip. The successful candidate will employ bio-printing and microfluidics technologies, along with imaging, transcriptomics and proteomics to validate the in vitro models.

We are based at the Gene Center Munich and at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of LMU. Our group is embedded in the stimulating, interdisciplinary environment of the life sciences campus Großhadern of the Ludwig-Maximilians University Munich (LMU) and the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, located in Oberschleißheim. Downtown Munich can be reached by public transport within 20 minutes, the German Alps in just over 1 hour.
