Project title: Reciprocal interaction between hair follicle Stem Cells and surrounding niche during skin and hair regeneration niche during skin and hair regeneration
Project Description: The main goal of the project is to investigate the behavior of hair follicle stem cells (hfSCs) during stem cells (SCs) quiescence and activation. Currently, my laboratory shed light on how a competitive balance of BMP/WNT signaling regulate hfSCs but there is a gap in our scientific knowledge regarding how BMP/WNT signaling integrate the regulation of different molecular networks in hfSCs during hair cycle. Our long term objective is to understand how this regenerative hair cycling behavior is regulated at the molecular level, and how reciprocal interaction between hfSCs and surrounding niche changes during hair homeostasis and regeneration.br /> Project is carried out within the TEAM programme of the Foundation for Polish Science
Key responsibilities include:
1. A Ph.D. student will work with genetically modified mice (to obtain a required genetic background with mice crossing, inducing gene activation or ablation in vivo, mice genotyping, and analyzing of mouse phenotypes). 2. A Ph.D. student will be involved in cells isolation from varies tissues predominantly from skin of genetically modified mice. 3. Sorting of stem cells by FACS and preparation of samples for RNA–seq or Chip-seq analysis as well as stem cells culture in vitro. 4. Tissue analysis by immunofluorescent /immunoisochemistry staining and /or in situ hybridization with use of microscope techniques.
Profile of candidates/requirements:
1. M.Sc. in Biology, Biotechnology or M.D. in Medicine 2. Good knowledge of English, 3. Knowledge of Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, PowerPoint 4. Team work skills, 5.
