The role

At the cell compartmentation group, we are looking for a new team member who will employ CRISPR, ShRNA and siRNA primarily in mammalian cells, to address the mechanism of collagen secretion. The candidate should be interested in developing new molecular tools for studying protein secretion.

About the lab

The Intracellular compartmentation lab studies different aspects of protein secretion. Protein secretion is an old problem of fundamental interest in cell biology. While over the last decades a lot of progress has been made in understanding protein secretion, a number of questions remain unsolved. The lab aims to understand different aspects of this. On the one had they study the process whereby cytoplasmic, signal sequence lacking proteins are secreted from cells upon certain stimuli (known as unconventional protein secretion). On the other hand they focus on the transport and secretion of large, complex cargoes (like collagens and mucins) that do not fit the conventional secretory pathway.
