Postdoc Position in Bioinformatics in Cancer Biology

A postdoc position is immediately available in the team of Associate Professor Paolo Ceppi at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Southern Denmark. Application deadline: 27 January 2023.The research group uses various molecular and cell biology techniques, advanced mouse models, bioinformatics and high-throughput technologies to unravel novel fundamental mechanisms that govern the plasticity of cancer cells in solid tumours, with a special focus on metabolic pathways. The ultimate goal of our projects is to develop innovative anticancer therapies and strategies to combat aggressive cancers. We are a diverse and dynamic international work environment, located in the SDU Main Campus in Odense, Denmark.

Candidates with prior knowledge and expertise in bioinformatics and basic computational methods for cancer research will be prioritized.

Furthermore you should have:
