Job Details

Project Summary- Presence of disseminated tumor cells (DTCs) following successful treatment of primary tumors poses a risk factor for metastasis which is the leading cause of cancer mortality. This is because DTCs are the source of later relapse. DTCs remain dormant for several years but eventually they reawaken and become deadly metastases. Current knowledge on mechanisms controlling the dormancy programs of DTCs and the timing for reactivation is limited. Only detailed knowledge of DTC biology will open therapeutic alternatives which will extend remission.

 

We are currently exploring:

 

  • Transcriptional programs controlling DTC fates (short- vs. long-term dormancy programs). Therapeutic strategies to eradicate DTCs by targeting survival pathways. Contribution of early dissemination events to metastasis formation.

Postdoc’s Qualities: We are seeking the following skills/knowledge in a candidate but not limited to these:

 

  1. Epigenetics knowledge with previous training in CHIP, Cut&Run assays and analysis. Computational biology knowledge Cancer knowledge Molecular biology techniques Biochemical assays Cell culture 2D, 3D Fluorescence Microscopy Imaging analysis Animal studies

 

 

The contract is for 4 years with possibility for an extension of additional 2 years. The project is completely funded by NCI and additional foundation grants.
