Offer Description

Cancer treatment in patients with paediatric brain tumours leads to long-lasting side effects, including a decline in cognitive function. The present PhD project focuses on the role of the neuroimmune response in the development of radiotherapy-induced neurological decline and endocrine dysfunction, and provides exposure to a range of subjects ranging from molecular cell biology, bioinformatics to behavioural neuroscience. The PhD student will carry out a variety of tasks, involving in vitro laboratory experiments (e.g. cell and organoid culture), bioinformatics (e.g. single nuclei and spatial transcriptomics) and in vivo animal studies (largely behavioural tests). This position will be supported by a research technician working on the same project.


Requirements
Specific Requirements
