Technicians cancer drug and immune responses (2)
Your function within the department
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 obtain more durable responses for cancer patients. As an example, we have set up a patient-derived xenograft platform, which we will use to study the process of phenotype switching in melanoma, with the ultimate goal to investigate whether this process can be therapeutically exploited.
Your profile: an excellent all-round technician.
We are seeking two highly committed and accurate technicians with expertise in molecular biology and mouse studies. You should enjoy multitasking, which requires excellent organizational skills, and you should have an interest in performing experiments both in the laboratory and in mice. It will be your responsibility to provide scientific and technical support for several studies, including phenotype switching and studies aiming to identify novel targets for cancer treatment. With a considerable degree of independence, you will work in a team alongside our investigators. You are keen to innovate and eager to help carrying out also general and organizational tasks. For this function, it is essential that you hold a license for working with laboratory animals (art. 12 or 9). Excellent proficiency in English and good communicative skills are important requirements, as is a team player mentality.
Your career opportunities and terms of employment
You will be employed for a period of at least 1 year. The gross salary per month is € 2.066 to € 2.960 according to the FWG-function group 45, and depends on previous experience. The terms of employment will be in accordance with the CAO Hospitals.
