Postdoctoral Researcher in Cancer Research : Ankara, Turkey
The major research themes in our lab are systems-level analysis of therapy resistance and metastasis mainly in breast cancer. Combining animal models with high-throughput transcriptomics/proteomics approaches, bioinformatics/modeling tools and clinical sample analysis, our young and dynamic group focuses on identifying novel targets overcoming resistance to state-of-art clinically-applied or -tested drugs and preventing metastatic spread of breast cancer. Our projects are funded by EMBO Installation Grant, Marie Curie CIG, TUBITAK, TUBITAK-CNRS (France) and TUBA. We have several post-doctoral position to study the role of non-coding RNAs and proteins in breast cancer metastasis and therapy resistance. Highly motivated individuals (Ph.D.) with a solid background and skills in cancer biology are encouraged to apply.
Candidates are expected to have the following skills e.g. cell culture, molecular and cell biology techniques, protein biochemistry and confocal microscopy. Experience with mouse models and RNA biology is a plus.
Qualified individuals will have financial support for housing on campus, health insurance and lunch ticket in addition to the monthly salary.
