Postdoctoral Fellow in Belgium

POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER IN SPATIAL BIOLOGY: We are actively looking for an enthusiastic and innovative engineer or interdisciplinary scientist with expertise in spatial (multi-)omics method development to join a multi-disciplinary team headed by Prof. Thierry Voet at the KU Leuven Institute for Single Cell Omics (LISCO).

Postdoctoral Researcher

Research Area:
Spatial Biology (-omics)

Leuven, Belgium

PhD in life sciences (bioengineering, biomedical sciences, genomics, or equivalent) with a strong publication record.

Job Description:
We are seeking a motivated postdoctoral researcher to drive the development of innovative spatial multi-omics methods. In this role, you will design methods, execute experiments, analyze data, and collaborate closely with our interdisciplinary team.

  • Conceptualize novel technologies for spatial (multi-)omics and their biological or biomedical application.
  • Develop spatial multi-omics methods in an interdisciplinary innovation lab.
  • Troubleshoot and optimize protocols to ensure a high level of quality and reliability of generated results.
  • Develop automated and/or miniaturized versions of spatial omics protocols to enhance throughput and minimize costs.
  • Horizon scan and implement novel spatial multi-omics technologies.
  • Optimize and execute experiments using spatial (multi-)omics methodologies across various sample types.
  • Design, optimize, and execute experiments using spatial (multi)omics platforms across various tissue types (human, animal, and plant tissues).
  • Handle and analyze human tissues and human model systems to better characterize cellular interactions and study biological mechanisms.
  • Collaborate with the team to translate technical and biological insights into compelling grant applications.
  • Foster new relationships with internal and external interdisciplinary research groups.
  • Report and communicate progress in meetings, publish scientific articles, and participate in international conferences.
