As a PhD Candidate at Single Cell Discoveries you will…
- …be part of a Contract Research Organization (CRO) providing single-cell RNA sequencing services and research. One of our goals is to develop novel single-cell sequencing technology to solve the complex biological problems in the real world.
- …work with state-of-the-art facilities, including the latest Illumina sequencers, (acoustic) liquid handlers, and bioinformatic support. We are a young company with a highly motivated and create team.
- …be based on the Utrecht Science Park, the Netherlands designated as the most competitive region of Europe.
- …work at a company with close ties to the Hubrecht Institute for Developmental Biology and Stem Cell Research, and access to many facilities on the Utrecht Science Park campus.
The aim of the #NERVSPAN project is to develop and perform full-length single-cell transcriptomics in C. elegans. Current long-read single-cell transcriptomic methods suffer from low sensitivity and incompatibility with C. elegans. We have years of expertise in developing new single-cell profiling methods in a wide range of organisms and cell types. In your research, you will perform dissociation experiments on C. elegans to obtain single cells or nuclei, develop new single-cell RNA sequencing tools, and analyze the resulting data.
▫ Develop a novel highly sensitive long-read scRNA-seq technology.
▫ Improve single-cell or single nuclei isolation from C. elegans.
▫ Perform single-cell sequencing data analysis.
As PhD candidate in NERVSPAN…
As a doctoral candidate within the NERVSPAN network, you will have the opportunity to work with leading academics and industrial partners from across Europe, gaining valuable experience in international collaboration and cutting-edge research. You will also benefit from a comprehensive training program that includes workshops, courses, and secondments, all aimed at enhancing your research and professional skills.LEARN MORE
