Professor in Skeletal Metabolism and Disorders Ref. ZAP-2021-102
The Department of Chronic Diseases and Metabolism – CHROMETA – is recruiting an outstanding basic scientist to advance the field of Skeletal Metabolism and Disorders in close collaboration with clinical researchers.
This research profile will be embedded in the division Clin&Exp Endocrinology which consists of several labs with excellent track records in fundamental and clinical research in the field of endocrinology, metabolic diseases, nutrition and bone disorders.
To excel in the rapidly evolving field of skeletal disorders, it will be essential to combine insights from endocrinology and skeletal metabolism and integrate them with influences from muscle, adipose tissue, gut, kidney, immune system etc. This integrative approach requires substantial expertise in skeletal homeostasis and disorders, strengthened with innovative concepts. The availability of Core facilities (rodent imaging, genomics, metabolomics,..) as well as the proximity of an academic hospital with more than 700 000 out-patients visits each year provide excellent opportunities for skeletal research.
