The Leading Fellows programme. Leiden University Medical Center takes part in the 'Leading Fellows' Marie Skłodowska-Curie program, specifically aimed at our region. This program will cover 90 fellowships for postdoctoral researchers from all over the world in the next two years. Candidates within 60 months from obtaining a PhD degree are invited to propose research projects exploiting their own strengths and the infrastructure and expertise of the host labs. See: https://www.lumc.nl/research/leading-fellows/ The current call within this program has 40 fellowships available, offering attractive working conditions for projects that last 24 months. We encourage motivated postdoc candidates to apply for a fellowship in the context of ubiquitin and ubiquitin-like signaling.
Ovaa and Vertegaal Laboratories and opportunities. Our labs play leading roles in the development and application of novel tools and techniques to profile cellular enzymatic activities associated primarily with ubiquitin and SUMO signal transduction. We combine biochemistry and cell biology with chemical synthesis in an interdisciplinary environment. Using the novel reagents, probes and small molecules that we develop, we investigate ubiquitin and SUMO conjugation and deconjugation and their roles in cancer and infection.
Leiden University Medical Center is a highly ranked university medical center for research, education and patient care. Post translational control of protein function and protein homeostasis are key focus areas. Local embedding includes the research groups of Sjaak Neefjes, Peter ten Dijke, Marjolein Kikkert and Haico van Attikum, providing a highly stimulating and collaborative research environment. Our Center is equipped with state-of-the-art core facilities for mass spectrometry, flow cytometry and both light and electron microscopy and post translational modifications are a strong point of focus at the institute. An international team of young and motivated scientists works together in our labs and departments.
