We are looking for highly-motivated individuals to join our group.
Our projects involve understanding the molecular basis for the formation and function of bone-resorbing osteoclasts and are directly relevant to the molecular genetics of bone in health and disease.
Available positions include:
- How do cells control their size? - PhD student / Post-Doctoral Research Fellow
Join a project that focuses on the molecular mechanisms by which osteoclasts, which are formed by fusion of monocyte precursor cells, track their size and “decide” when they are large enough to stop fusing. Preference will be given to individuals who have experience in proteomics and in advanced molecular techniques.
- The roles of protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs) in osteoclast formation and function – MSc / PhD student.
PTPs are major regulators of protein phosphorylation and as such play pivotal roles in regulating cellular functions. Join us to discover new roles for PTPs in regulating the formation and function of osteoclasts and their effect on bone homeostasis in vitro and in vivo.
- Rotation students, rotations 1, 2, and 3.
In these and in other related projects.
