in the department of Molecular Stem Cell Biology, headed by Prof. Frank Rosenbauer.

Applicants are invited to join our research team at the Institute of Molecular Tumor Biology. Our group has a long-term interest in elucidating molecular mechanisms controling blood stem cell functions and leukemia development (see for example Fischer et al. 2019 Nature Immunology, Schützmann et al. 2019 BLOOD and Riemke et al. 2016 The EMBO Journal).

We are currently seeking a highly motivated scientific fellow interested in obtaining a PhD in molecular cancer biology. We are offering a research project on the epigenetic role of transcription factors in leukemic stem cells. Findings from this project could be an important step towards developing novel therapy concepts for the treatment of leukemia patients.

The research fellow will use a wide arsenal of state-of-the-art technologies established in our team, reaching from in vivo leukemia models to single cell next generation sequencing. Candidates should have experience with tissue culture and standard molecular biology methods. Basic knowledge in computational analysis of next generation sequencing data and/or hands-on experience in working with laboratory mice would be an advantage. A good command of the English language is required.

We offer a productive and dynamic environment within a team of experienced researchers.

For more information on the advertised position please contact Prof. Frank Rosenbauer, frank.rosenbauer(at)­ukmuenster(dot)­de.
