We are looking for a highly motivated and dynamic researcher, who will join a team of molecular and cellular biologists studying how the transcriptional and epigenetic regulation of cellular states drives the progression of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma.

Our group and research

Our group studies the molecular mechanisms that regulate cellular differentiation in pancreas development and tissue homeostasis and understand how these mechanisms contribute to the initiation and metastasis of pancreatic cancer. We consider that cancer is a disease of differentiation and that molecular regulators of cellular identity are indeed potent tumor suppressors. At DanStem and BRIC, we bring together developmental and cancer biology using a combination of in vitro differentiation of pluripotent stem cells and genetically modified mouse models of pancreatic cancer. We analyze large genomic datasets to identify signaling pathways and regulatory elements altered in cancer, and their implication in the progression of the human disease. Our work is highly interdisciplinary, from high-throughput analyses to functional studies of disease-relevant genes and regulatory elements in vitro and in vivo. We cooperate with Hospitals for a more efficient transition from basic to translational studies.

Your job

You will investigate the transcriptional and epigenetic changes that take place in the dynamic transition of cellular states in pancreatic cancer. You will investigate how regulatory elements in the genome contribute the organization of nuclear domains and the regulation of gene expression. You will use state-of-the-art technologies, such as (but not only) single-cell RNA sequencing, identification of RNA-protein interactions, chromatin conformation capture experiments and follow-up functional genomics in human cell cultures and mouse models. The ultimate goal of the project is to obtain mechanistic insights into how the dynamic transition of cellular states is regulated. You will validate the results in well-annotated clinical samples.

Profile

We expect you to be highly motivated and ambitious scientist with the following competences and experience:

Essential:

  • You hold a Ph.D. Degree in Life or Natural Sciences, preferably in Developmental Biology or Cancer
