Postdoctoral Researcher in Prostate Cancer & DNA Damage Repair Translational Research

Postdoctoral Researcher in Prostate Cancer & DNA Damage Repair Translational Research

VHIO - Vall d’Hebron Institute of Oncology

Barcelona, Spain

The successful candidate will be involved in leading a series of in-vitro and in-vivo studies assessing the impact of different defects in double-strand break repair machinery on prostate cancer evolution and drug sensitivity. The appointed individual will also work on the optimization of functional assays in patients’ cancer biopsies and the correlation between these assays and genomics.

Requirements:

  • An organized, motivated and team-oriented individual with previous experience in a translational research laboratory, ideally with a background in cancer biology. Prior experience in the field of DNA damage repair is essential;
  • While the successful candidate will be expected to be relatively independent in pursuing this project, he/she will work coordinate with the rest of the team and supervise junior researchers. Moreover, since our group has only recently been established, the researcher will be required to set up and optimize many of the assays to be used in the project;
  • Expertise in molecular biology techniques such as protein biology, siRNA, shRNA, drug sensitivity assays, evaluation of DNA damage repair function (i.e. COMET assay, immunofluorescence). Experience in CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing will be highly considered;
  • Completed PhD with at least one publication as lead author;
  • Eligibility for EU and Spanish-funded fellowships will be favored;
  • Fluency in English is mandatory.
