The faculty of medicine and life sciences contributes to sustainable solutions for health-related issues as part of the civic Hasselt University. The faculty focuses on excellence in education and research and connects with society through a strong collaboration with our partners. Starting from continuous attention for quality and innovation, the faculty is a breeding ground and magnet for talent with an open view on society, from the region to the world.
The Biomedical Research Institute (BIOMED) of Hasselt University conducts high level multidisciplinary research to advance progress in human life sciences. High-end technology is used to deliver novel insights in three main disease areas: (neuro)immunology, neuroscience and cardiovascular disease. BIOMED aims to translate new scientific discoveries into applications that contribute to a healthy society in line with the civic ambition of Hasselt University. Within this stimulating environment, the Neuroimmune Connections & Repair (NIC&R) lab is looking for a postdoctoral researcher.
The NIC&R lab of BIOMED is looking for a motivated and ambitious postdoctoral researcher driven by scientific curiosity, to conduct research into repair mechanisms that are of therapeutic benefit for demyelinating disorders. You will engage in translational work to develop repair inducing strategies that boost remyelination in multiple sclerosis (MS), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and charcot marie tooth type 1A (CMT1A). This includes testing their effectiveness in transgenic mouse models, oligodendrocyte and schwann cell cultures and differentiated human iPS cells.
