The Department of Biosciences and Nutrition performs research and education in areas of medical science including bioorganic chemistry, molecular endocrinology, cancer biology, functional genomics, systems biology, epigenetics, structural biochemistry, cellular virology, and nutrition. The department offers an international study and working environment, including around 300 scientists, students, administrative and technical personnel.
The group studies the molecular mechanisms and pathways of nuclear receptors and non-coding RNAs involved in cancer. Previous work includes identification of the estrogen-regulated transcriptome and the roles of microRNAs in cell migration, with a focus on estrogen signaling in breast and colorectal cancer.
The position is temporary with maximum two year employment.
You will be involved in collecting, archiving and analyzing human biopsies specimens in tight connection with the hospital (KS). You will also work with several cancer cell lines and will conduct molecular and functional analysis of cell and tissue samples (human and mouse) using qPCR, RNA-seq, WB, cell proliferation/migration assays, and extraction/isolation of exosomes.
In addition, you will be involved in responsibilities including taking care of the common laboratory space, equipment and reagents.
A PhD in Biomedical Sciences or equivalent.The successful applicant is expected to have documented experience of
- several years of practical experience in laboratory work in the area of cellular and molecular biology in connection to gene regulation and cancer
- experience in assays for microRNA/lncRNA regulation, gene/protein expression, cell proliferation/migration;
- an understanding of bioinformatics analysis of genomic/transcriptomic high-throughput data (RNA-seq, microbiota 16S-seq…).
- practical experience of mouse models and animal work
Strong research interest and self-motivation, as well as the ability to work both independently and cooperatively with a team are important qualities. Experience with colorectal cancer research and models is an advantage. Excellent communication in English and organizational skills are a requisite.
The application is to be submitted on the MyNetwork recruitment system.
