The available postdoctoral position is financed for two years by the Cancer Research Center of the UZH, supporting novel interdisciplinary approaches that link basic molecular studies and clinical approaches. The project - co-supervised by the two PIs - will characterize mechanisms of replication stress associated with liver hyperproliferation, applying specialized cell and molecular biology methods to mouse models and human samples of chronic liver disease and hepatocellular carcinoma.
Candidates should preferentially have a solid background in molecular and cellular biology, tissue culture and animal experiments. Previous experience in the field of DNA replication/genome stability and/or in molecular investigations on liver/gastrointestinal tracts is highly valued. Preference will be given to candidates that have successfully finalized a previous project as first author, already published or in advanced consideration in a high-profile peer reviewed journal.
