Postdoc Position Wnt Signaling
DKFZ - German Cancer Research Center
The Wnt/ß-catenin pathway plays an eminent role in development and disease. The project involves characterisation of the signaling properties of novel candidate Wnt regulators and to study their role as regulators of cell differentiation in vitro and in vivo (Xenopus, embryonic stem cells, organoids or mouse). Notably, the link between Wnt signaling, cell proliferation, cell growth and mitosis shall be analyzed. The candidate will employ state of the art technologies, including NGS techniques. We are an English speaking, international laboratory (Prof. Christof Niehrs).
Applicants should hold a PhD degree (postdocs) in biology/life sciences with an excellent background in cellular or developmental- and molecular biology, with a track record of relevant publications in peer-reviewed journals. The applicants should be highly self-motivated and be able to pursue research projects independently as well as in collaborations. An excellent written and oral command of English is essential.
