Shoshkes Carmel lab has an opening for a passionate postdoctoral fellow in the field of Telocytes as niche cells. We are seeking for a candidate with a strong mouse genetics background. We apply “-omics”, genetics and live-imaging approaches to uncover key aspects in the cell biology of Telocytes, large stromal cells recently emerged to constitute the intestinal stem cell niche, and their role in intestinal homeostasis.
