Post-doctoral position

University of Liege, Belgium

Postdoctoral Position in Molecular Biology/Signal Transduction/ Cancer/Inflammation

A post-doctoral position is available starting on January 1st 2017 in the Unit of Molecular Biology of Diseases (Prof. Alain Chariot) (Interdisciplinary Cluster for Applied Genoproteomics, GIGA-R, University of Liege, Belgium).

We are seeking a talented and highly motivated post-doctoral candidate in order to explore the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying tumor development and progression. We are currently studying poorly characterized candidates acting in oncogenic signaling pathways. Some of these projects include the characterization of new mouse models of intestinal and breast cancer in which our candidates of interest are inactivated (Delaunay et al., The Journal of Experimental Medicine, 2016; Ladang et al., The Journal of Experimental Medicine, 2015; Shostak et al., Nature Communications, 2014; Creppe et al., Cell 2009; Close et al., Molecular Cell 2006; Viatour et al., Molecular Cell 2004).

Previous experience in these fields and/or in genetically modified mouse models of cancer is preferred. Published evidence of aptitude for high quality research is essential.

Applications (from recently qualified PhD students and from postdoc scientists with no more than 5 years post-doc-PhD experience): Please send a cover letter describing your interests in Biomedical Research and your previous scientific contributions, a CV listing your publications as first and co-author and at least two reference letters to Alain Chariot (bh783m@job2r.com).
