The Serup Lab offers Master's positions
Open positions for Master’s students in Molecular Biomedicine to work on projects related to cell fate choices in pancreatic development.
The Serup group at The Danish Stem Cell Center (DanStem) has a number of positions open for Master’s students in Molecular Biomedicine to work on projects related to cell fate choices in pancreatic development.
The projects are focused on how gene regulatory networks integrate cell-cell signaling with lineage determining transcription factors to specify cell fate sequentially in the developing pancreas. The projects use human ES cells and genetically modified mouse embryos as models and there will be opportunities to work with both systems.
The projects are part of a larger effort to understand how transient signaling events can lead to lasting changes in cell fate and are typically done in collaboration with other group members. Methods include ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, and CRISPR/Cas9-mediated knockout in human ES cells as well as immunohistochemical methods and time-lapse imaging using various reporter systems based on fluorescent and bioluminescent proteins.
