Post-Doctoral Fellowship

Support for Marie Curie Post-Doc Position in ‘Investigating the cell fate decisions during differentiation of ES-cells to thyroid gland using single-cell technologies’

Interested in cell therapy? Excited about discovering regulators of a differentiation program? Then, this could be an exciting post-doc opportunity for you.

The research group of Dr Sabine Costagliola along with us are jointly offering support for Marie Curie Post-Doc application on using single-cell technologies to understand the directed differentiation of ES-cells into thyroid organoid.

The lab of Dr. Costagliola was the first to generate functional thyroid gland from mouse ES cells. With our expertise in single-cell transcriptome analysis, the project will aim to define the trajectory from naïve ES cells to functional thyroid gland using single-cell genomics. We hope to understand the bottlenecks and hurdles in the differentiation process so as to overcome them and generate a more efficient differentiation process.
