Technician for improving melanoma therapy - Peeper Lab


Your function within the department

Project information:
In our laboratory we are studying cancer drug responses in the context of targeted drugs, as well as in the context of immunotherapy, focusing on melanoma and lung cancer. We are dedicated to translate our findings to the clinic and aim to achieve more durable responses for cancer patients. For this project, we have set up a patient-derived xenograft platform from patients’ melanoma biopsies. We use those to study the process of “phenotype switching”, a poorly understood yet highly important process involved in therapy resistance. The goal of this study is to investigate whether this process can be therapeutically exploited.

Your profile

Your profile: an excellent all-round technician.
We are seeking a highly committed and accurate technician who has expertise in both molecular biology and mouse experiments. With a considerable degree of independence you will work together with a small team of researchers. You will also contribute to the organization of the lab in general.
For this position it is strictly necessary that you hold a license for working with laboratory animals (art. 12 or 9). Proficiency in English and good communicative skills are important requirements as well, as is a team player mentality.

You will be employed for a period of at least 1 year. The gross salary per month is € 2.102,- to € 3.012,- according to the FWG-function group 45, and depends on previous experience.
