Department GE31 - Department of Biomolecular Medicine
Employment category Doctoral fellow
Contract Limited duration
Degree Master in Science (Bioengineering, Biochemistry-Biotechnology, Biomedical Sciences, Medicine)
Occupancy rate 100%
Vacancy Type Research staff
The lab of Translational Onco-genomics and Bioinformatics (supervised by prof. dr. ir. Katleen De Preter) and the lab for Pediatric Oncology (supervised by prof. dr. Frank Speleman and prof. dr. M.D. Bram De Wilde) at the Department of Biomolecular Medicine (UGent) have a vacancy for a highly motivated biomedical researcher with expertise and interest in translational cancer research. More information on the teams and the research focus can be found at www.crig.ugent.be/en/prof-katleen-de-preter-phd and www.crig.ugent.be/en/prof-frank-speleman-phd.
A new era of clinical care, so-called precision oncology is opening unprecedented potential for developing novel therapeutic strategies for cancer patients. Amongst others, liquid biopsies are now offering a great potential for non-invasive exploration of circulating tumor nucleic acids and cells thus allowing improved diagnostics, tumor follow up, study of heterogeneity, etc. More recently, our teams have implemented several sequencing technologies on liquid biopsies of pediatric cancer patients. The new PhD student will further develop, implement and apply these new tools, finally aiming at an improved clinical management for each individual patient.
The research in our team is supported by several grants focused on DNA and RNA sequencing generated on bulk as well as single cancer cells and nucleic acids obtained using invasive and non-invasive sampling.
What we offer:
You will work in a multidisciplinary environment under the supervision of senior scientists in molecular biology and genetics in the Department of Biomolecular Medicine and within the broader framework of the Cancer Research Institute Ghent (crig.ugent.be) where you will perform genomics analysis on pediatric tumors aiming at a more precise care for the patient. We offer:
Candidates can apply by sending their CV and letter of motivation to email@example.com before November 1st, 2020. Top-ranked candidates will be invited for an interview (either Zoom/Teams or on site).
