Postdoc position on Tumor-associated-macrophages at the skin cancer stem cell niche, Department of Biology, University of Copenhagen

A 2.5-year postdoc position is available starting from the 1st of April, 2018 (or shortly thereafter) at the Section for Cell Biology and Physiology, Department of Biology, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. The Section is located on Universitetsparken 13, 2100 Copenhagen. For more information, please visit: http://www1.bio.ku.dk/cbp/.   
 
Project area 
The Postdoc position is funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation. Understanding the role of Tumor-associated-macrophages (TAMs) in governing cancer cells (CSC) features is one of the major goals in cancer cell biology. Despite recent advances in this arena, more efforts are needed to identify specific molecules that promote the interactions between CSCs with TAMs and spur tumor growth. The postdoc will participate in a project that explores the nature of the selective interactions of TAMs with CSCs. 
 
The main tasks for the Postdoctoral Fellow will be to establish macrophage and cancer stem cells primary cell lines, work with genetically engineered skin mouse models and perform cutting-edge -omics analyses, microscopy imaging and FACS.
