100%, Zurich, fixed-term
The Molecular Oncology Lab, headed by Prof. Nicola Aceto, is located at the Institute of Molecular Health Sciences of the Department of Biology (D-BIOL) within the Hönggerberg campus at ETH Zurich, and comprises a team of dedicated scientists and collaborators.
The Molecular Oncology Lab combines a wide variety of disciplines to answer outstanding questions in cancer research, with a particular emphasis on the biology of human circulating tumor cells responsible for developing metastasis in patients. This interdisciplinary research group combines microfluidics technologies, patient samples, in vivo models, genome engineering, single-cell analysis, and computational and molecular biology to study how cancer spreads. Recent discoveries from the group involve the identification of metastatic precursors in breast cancer patients (e.g. Diamantopoulou et al., Nature, 2022; Szczerba et al., Nature, 2019; Gkountela et al., Cell, 2019; Donato et al., Cell Rep, 2020), leading to the development of new clinical trials.
We seek a highly-motivated Postdoctoral fellow to lead current drug screen projects in the lab, aimed at the identification of new molecules that act as metastasis suppressors. You will be part of an international team of researchers and participate in well-funded projects at the interface between academia and pharma, in a highly motivated scientific environment.
- Holding a doctoral degree (MD and/or PhD)
- Experienced in cancer research, with excellent publications in the field
- Familiar with cell culture and molecular biology
- Familiar with the use of in vivo models of cancer
- Not afraid of automation and large drug screens
- Excited to work in a highly-collaborative environment that includes molecular biologists, clinicians, and computational biologists
- Capable of independent thinking, ambitious, focused on discovery
- A team player with excellent communication and writing skills (English)
