Offer Description

Description of project
The main goal of this project is to enable constant monitoring of triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) evolution and response to treatment, using only patients’ blood. Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) represent a very strong candidate for following cancer using minimally invasive techniques (e.g., blood samples). Currently, very little is known about these CTCs in patients with TNBC, and mostly about the so-called protein-coding repertoire. We wish to also unlock the remaining portion of the transcriptome, the elusive non-coding transcriptome.

•    35 months full-time employment (with the possibility of extending the project to 48 months)
•    stipend amount/month: 3800 PLN net; increased to 7000 net (~1500 EUR) upon successful application to the Doctoral School
•    co-authorship of publications in recognized scientific journals
participation in the implementation of research projects on innovative methods of diagnosis
•    opportunity for commercial cooperation with biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies
