Postdoc Position in Cancer Biology and Metabolism

Updated: 27 days ago
Deadline: 24 Jul 2022

A postdoc position is immediately available (expected start date 1 September 2022) in the team of Associate Professor Paolo Ceppi at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB), University of Southern Denmark. Application deadline: 24 July 2022.

The research group uses various molecular and cell biology techniques, advanced mouse models, bioinformatics and high-throughput technologies to unravel novel fundamental mechanisms that govern the plasticity of cancer cells in solid tumours, with a special focus on metabolic pathways. The ultimate goal of our projects is to develop innovative anti-cancer therapies and strategies to combat aggressive cancers. We are a diverse and dynamic international work environment, located in the SDU Main Campus in Odense, Denmark.

Candidates with prior knowledge and expertise in LC-MS based metabolomics will be prioritized. The metabolomics work will be carried out in collaboration with the M3 (Molecular Metabolism and Metabolomics) group at BMB.

The position is for one year, but could be extended based on performance. The postdoc is expected (and will receive significant support) to attract external funding, to work independently, and to participate in other projects at the lab
