Laboratory of Professor Jussi Taipale at the Medical Systems Biology group (https://www2.helsinki.fi/en/researchgroups/medical-systems-biology ) at the Applied Tumour Genetic Program at University of Helsinki, Faculty of Medicine invites applications for the position of
SENIOR RESEARCHER (Co-PI) IN TAIPALE GROUP
Our research group is part of the Academy of Finland's Centre of Excellence in Tumour Genetics Research. The laboratory focuses on the study of transcriptional control of cell growth, using functional genomics and systems biology. Current lines of work include high-throughput determination of binding sites and binding specificities of human transcription factors, using this information to identify regulatory elements that control cell growth during normal development or in cancer.
Position includes both scientific and administrative tasks, with the latter consisting of personnel (such as supervision of lab members, recruitment) and financial responsibilities (such as handling grant applications, reporting to financing bodies and planning and executing larger purchases). Scientific part constitutes ca. 75% of the tasks and requires a strong background in any of the following fields: molecular biology, genetics, medicine, biochemistry or computer science. Applicants should be interested in working in an interdisciplinary environment as the laboratory combines experimental and in silico analyses.
For additional information about the position, please contact Dr. Daniela Ungureanu: email@example.com .
WHAT WE OFFER?
The position is available from September 2022 onwards, and can be started upon agreement. A six-month trial period will be applied. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience based on the University guidelines. It is a 3-year fixed-term position, with a possibility of extension.
