JOB DESCRIPTION

Postdoctoral Position in cancer immunology

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Professor Momo Bentires-Alj at the Department of Biomedicine (DBM) in Basel, Switzerland. Our lab focuses on the molecular mechanisms controlling normal and neoplastic breast stem cells, metastasis and resistance to therapy, and on personalized cancer treatments: https://bentireslab.org/
Selected publications of our lab include: 1- Cessation of CCL2 inhibition accelerates breast cancer metastasis by promoting angiogenesis. Bonapace L, et al., Nature 2014. 2-PIK3CAH1047R induces multipotency and multi-lineage mammary tumors. Koren S, et al.,Nature 2015. 3- Hippo kinases LATS1/2 control human breast cell fate via crosstalk with ERα.Britschgi A, et al., Nature 2017.

Your position
The tasks include studies on immune system changes during breast cancer progression to metastasis and CRISPR-CAS9 screens to identify means to harness the immune system. The candidate will work on an interdisciplinary project that uses pathophysiologically relevant models and state-of-the-art technologies to identify non-cell autonomous molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying metastases.

Your profile
A strong background in immunology is required. The successful candidate should be highly motivated, have a PhD in immunology, and a strong interest in molecular and cellular mechanisms of cancer progression.

We offer you
A stimulating, challenging and interdisciplinary research environment, state-of-the-art technologies and core facilities, and attractive employment conditions. The DBM is an international institute pursuing basic, translational and clinical research, with access to
cutting-edge core facilities.

Applications should be submitted electronically at:
