Research group: George Cresswell Group
Working hours: Fulltime
Are you interested in working in an ambitious team that combines genomics
and tumor evolution to better understand pediatric cancers?
Here is your chance to contribute to science that makes a difference!
The Cresswell Group is recruiting a PhD student (f/m/d) interested in bioinformatics, cancer genomics and tumor evolution to strengthen its young and innovative research team. In this responsible role, you will have the unique opportunity to be part of a multidisciplinary competence center for pediatric cancer research and to have a direct influence on the development of new cancer therapies and biomarkers.
The Cresswell Group is focused on the mutational processes and evolution of pediatric cancers. The aim of this research group is to get a better understanding of the disease and to predict which children are most at risk of a poor response to treatment. The close collaboration with the pioneering Precision Oncology Program (POP) at St. Anna Children’s Cancer Research Institute, with other computational teams and with medical experts at the St. Anna Children’s Hospital guarantees the best knowledge exchange to develop new approaches and methods for studying genomic alterations in pediatric cancers and understanding their role in patient outcomes.
