Postdoctoral Scientist in Molecular Tumor Cell Biology

Postdoctoral Position in Molecular Tumor Cell Biology

Location: Institute of Cell Biology and Immunology at the University of Stuttgart (Germany)

Reporting to: Prof. Dr. Monilola Olayioye

Availability: The position is available from January 1st 2017, initially for 3 years.

Project background and description: A Postdoctoral Researcher position (E13/100%) is available at the Institute of Cell Biology and Immunology (IZI) at the University of Stuttgart in the group of Prof. Dr. Monilola Olayioye. Our research team studies cellular signaling networks underlying breast and colorectal cancer progression. In 2D/3D cell culture and organoid models, the project is focused on elucidating how oncogenic signaling cooperates with the loss of the DLC family of tumor suppressors in cell transformation. The lab comprises a team of enthusiastic scientists engaged in interdisciplinary research activities with other labs at the IZI, the Stuttgart campus, and academic, clinical and industrial partners across Germany.

Qualification/requirements: A strong experimental background in cell biology, biochemistry and molecular biology, a genuine interest in scientific questions, team spirit, excellent communication skills, and the ability of working independently are expected. Prior experience in tissue culture, viral gene transfer, and mouse cancer models are highly desired.

Host institution: The University of Stuttgart is one of the top leading technical universities in Germany. The Institute of Cell Biology and Immunology is part of the Faculty of Energy-, Process- and Biotechnology and provides state-of-the-art equipment and the possibility to work in an inspiring interdisciplinary and collaborative environment. The institute also is a key pillar for the Central Facility of Advanced Microscopy within the Stuttgart Research Center Systems Biology (SRCSB), one of the largest German interfaculty infrastructures for systems biological research that brings together experimental and mathematical simulation groups.

PMIDs of selected recent publications: 25889896, 25035394, 25198428, 24337579
