For the Postdoc position in cancer metabolism, we are looking for an enthusiastic and collaborative team player. The position is available in the division of Cell Biology, Metabolism & Cancer in the Department of Biomolecular Health Sciences at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of Utrecht University. The overall aim of the research project is to identify and target cancer-specific metabolic events. Cancer cells modify their metabolism and it is unknown which metabolic pathways are critical drivers of cancer progression and uncontrolled cell divisions. The project will involve cell cycle specific fluorescent imaging, cell sorting and mass spectrometry to identify metabolic events and target them by utilizing available inhibitors, RNA interference, or CRISPR-Cas9 technology. In addition, novel dissecting methodology will be developed to discover metabolic events in areas of cancerization in biopsies.
You will work in a multidisciplinary team of Researchers with unique expertise including Dr Bart Westendorp (cell cycle), Prof Celia Berkers (metabolomics), Prof Bernd Helms (lipidomics), and Prof Alain de Bruin (cancer). The research environment you will work in is inspiring and you are surrounded by innovative research labs and will have access to state-of-the-art research facilities including mass-spectrometry, single cell analysis, imaging, flowcytometry and biobanks with patient materials, localized at the Utrecht Science Campus in the Netherlands.
In this role you are responsible for:
- the design and the realization of the research project cancer metabolism;
- contribution to research projects of our team;
- writing high quality research publications;
- writing and contributing to research proposals for receiving external research funding;
- supervising research projects of Master's and Bachelor's students;
- the opportunity to participate in the teaching programme for veterinary Bachelor's students.
