We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow who is interested in joining our interdisciplinary team of experimental and computational biologists working on kidney cancer. The project will focus on understanding the genetic and epigenetic basis of cancer development and progression, and on developing innovative therapeutic approaches toward precision medicine. The candidate will be expected to establish innovative 3D models of human tumors in vitro (e.g. organoids) and use functional genomics and pharmacological assays to study cancer progression and vulnerabilities in these models. The work involves substantial collaboration with computational biologists developing new approaches in bioinformatics to analyze and functionalize large-scale genomic datasets (e.g. RNA-seq and genome sequencing). The overarching goal of this effort is to understand and target tumor heterogeneity and progression at single-cell level.
Qualifying skills and abilities
While PhD in molecular or cellular biology, genetics, biochemistry or related areas is suitable, candidates with a solid record of accomplishment, innovation and creativity in field of cancer research are particularly encouraged to apply. Strong laboratory skills, as well as experience with functional experiments using cell, animal and tissue samples are desirable. Preference will be given to candidates who have experience in Kidney cancer research or in establishing or application of in vitro 3D models for functional studies, including tumor cell proliferation, aggressiveness and response to therapy. Familiarity with computational biology or bioinformatics is an asset.
Interested applicants should send their application including CV information of three references to firstname.lastname@example.org
