Vacant positions

Bruxelles Woluwe

The MNUT team is looking for a postdoctoral fellow with expertise in mouse experimentation and energy metabolism (ideally adipose tissue).

The successful candidate will investigate the mechanisms by which cancer cells can communicate with the adipose tissue, leading potentially to cancer progression and metastases, as well as fat mass loss. The candidate will also consider how the gut microbiota can interfere with this crosstalk. This project is part of a research concerted action involving 5 research teams with complementary expertise and benefitting from seed funds from the UCLouvain (see info enclosed).
