Postdoc in RhoA function in cancer at BRIC, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, Denmark

Postdoc in RhoA function in cancer at BRIC, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences,

University of Copenhagen, Denmark



We are looking for a highly motivated and dynamic researcher for a 2 year post doc position starting in April 2019 in the Brakebusch lab. The Brakebusch lab is located at the Biotech Research and Innovation Center (BRIC) (www.bric.ku.dk/Research/Brakebusch_Group/), which is a Center of Excellence in biomedical research with around 200 scientists.

Our research
Rho GTPases such as RhoA, Rac1 and Cdc42 are important regulators of the cytoskeleton, but also involved in signal transduction processes regulating proliferation, differentiation and survival. An E40Q point mutations in RhoA is considered to be a driver mutation in Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma and probably also in breast cancer and lung adenocarcinoma. Based on cancer genome analysis and own research with RhoA function in skin tumor, we hypothesize that RhoA E40Q is a partially inactive RhoA mutant with a cancer promoting role in HNSCC.

Your job
Aim of this project is to test and validate the tumor promoting role of RHOA E40Q in vivo and in vitro and to investigate the underlying molecular mechanism. RhoA E40Q function in tumor development will be studied using novel genetically modified mice expressing RhoAE40Q, which will be prepared in collaboration with the Transgenic Mouse Core Facility at the University of Copenhagen. This work will help to identify additional drug targets for precision oncology therapy of HNSCC RHOA E40Q patients.

Essential experience and skills:

  • A PhD in biological/biomedical science
  • Strong experience in cell culture and molecular biology

The position is for two years, available tentatively from 1 June 2020 in an interdisciplinary project focused on genetic and micro-environmental drivers of pancreatic cancer. Characteristic hallmarks of the disease are several specific driver mutations and a dense, acidic microenvironment. The interplay between these factors in driving disease onset and progression is uncharacterized. In this project, an interdisciplinary team will address this question using state-of-the-art organoid models, genomics and advanced bioinformatics approaches. Research environment The project is a collaboration between Prof. Albin Sandelin, BRIC and Dept. of Biology, and Prof. Stine F. Pedersen, Dept. of Biology. The candidate will be based in Albin Sandelin s group, and will work closely with a postdoc counterpart in the Stine F Pedersen lab and several PhD students in both labs. The two groups are located within 5 minutes walking distance in the Northern Campus of the University of Copenhagen. Together, the groups employ several postdocs, PhD students, and undergraduate students and provide a strong, international research environment. The project will additionally be affiliated with the Marie Curie ITN project pHIoniC , in which two PhD students are already recruited for the project (one in each group). The Sandelin laboratory is a joint wet and dry lab focusing on medical and fundamental transcriptomics (see www.sandelinlab.org). Highlights from the lab include: Anderson and Sandelin: Determinants of enhancer and promoter activities of regulatory elements. Nature Reviews Genetics 2019 Boyd et al: Characterization of the enhancer and promoter landscape of inflammatory bowel disease from human colon biopsies. Nature Communications 2018 Chen et al: Principles for RNA metabolism and alternative transcription initiation within closely spaced promoters.

Science 2015, Andersson et al: An atlas of active enhancers across the human body. Nature 2014 Project and specific qualifications The candidate will be responsible for the computational analysis of RNA-seq and DNA-sequencing data derive from organoid models, and integrating these data with phenotypic measurements at defined time points. Work with additional data is also likely, including single cell RNA-seq and possibly CAGE data. This will be done in close collaboration with one computational PhD student and the experimental group. Applicants must hold a PhD or equivalent in bioinformatics or a mathematical discipline with a strong biological interest, and a substantial publication record in high-quality international journals focused on the analysis of genomics data. Candidates finishing their PhD before 1 May 2020 will also be considered. We require: Strong experience in analyzing high-throughput sequencing data, in particular RNA-seq and variant calling Documented experience in statistical analyses of such data, including expression analysis, as well as quality control and visualization Experience in statistical genetics and statistical modelling is a large advantage Strong programming skills in Python and R, or equivalents, and experience using linux unix platforms Excellent English skills One or more first authorships in well-respected bioinformatics or genomics journals A passion for working in a highly interdisciplinary environment. Experience in multivariate statistics, network and time course analysis and sequence analysis are strong advantages. Similarly, experience knowledge in cancer and cell biology is an advantage. Although the focus will be on computational work, the candidate will be working closely together with experimental scientists, and will be expected to understand the experiments and underlying biology and fruitfully interact with other specialists.
