PhD Student (f/m/d) Cell Biology or Molecular Biology
German Cancer Research Center
The German Cancer Research Center is the largest biomedical research institution in Germany. With approximately 3,000
employees, we operate an extensive scientific program in the field of cancer research.
Together with university partners at seven renowned partner sites, we have established the German Cancer Consortium (DKTK).
For the partner site of DKTK München the German Cancer Research Center is seeking a
We are focused on studying leukemic stem cells in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). In particular, we are interested in
the interaction between leukemic stem cells and their microenvironment (niche) in the bone marrow to identify and target critical pathways directing clonal
evolution and enabling survival of leukemic stem cells through interaction with the stem cell niche. Current projects have an emphasis on epigenetic changes
in the bone marrow microenvironment during clonal evolution in MDS and AML and involve use of transgenic and transplantation mouse models as well as primary
human bone marrow samples. Our projects are funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG, SFB 1243), the Jose Carreras Leukämiestiftung (EPISTROMA)
and the German Cancer Consortium (Deutsches Konsortium für Translationale Krebsforschung, DKTK).
The current project funded within the DKTK (Joint Funding CHOICE) is focused on stem cell profiling and clonal evolution in MDS and is a highly collaborative
project involving other DKTK partner sites (Dresden, Frankfurt).
We are looking for an ambitious, highly motivated and enthusiastic candidate with a background in cell biology or molecular biology and an ability to work in a
team. Applicants interested in translational cancer research, cancer biology, hematopoieis, leukemia and/or stem cells are encouraged to apply. Prior experience
with stem cell assays, flow cytometry, bioinformatics, genomics or computational biology is highly desirable.
The position is limited to 3 years.
