Open PhD Position - Quantitative Spatial Cancer Biology research group

limited | Announcement number: 306-2022

We are seeking a motivated PhD Student to join our "Quantitative Spatial Cancer Biology" research group at the Dr. Senckenberg Institute of Pathology and the Mildred Scheel Career Center (MSNZ) Frankfurt, an excellence program supporting careers in translational cancer research (funded by the German Cancer Aid). The lab, headed by Dr. Konstantinos Kokkaliaris, specializes in hematopoietic stem-cell biology and bone marrow tissue organization in health and cancer. We use innovative single-cell protein profiling technologies including cutting-edge multiplexed tissue imaging, multicolor flow cytometry and mass cytometry. The focus of the lab is to better understand tissue organization in homeostasis, cancer and aging as well as further develop multiplex tissue imaging modalities.

Project description:

The project aims at defining the key cellular, molecular and structural alterations in the bone marrow tissue in hematologic malignancies and response to chemotherapy. We will focus on targetable interactions between blood cells and their microenvironment(s) to enhance healthy tissue regeneration post treatment. Our goal is to leverage those findings towards the design of novel therapeutic intervention strategies for longer disease-free remission.

We expect:

  • Master’s degree in life sciences, biology or equivalent
  • Passion for discovery, collaborative spirit & good communication skills
  • Basic experience in laboratory techniques (i.e. molecular biology)
  • Good knowledge of English
  • Due to legal regulation an employment relationship may only be entered by people who are vaccinated against or have recovered from COVID-19. In addition, a valid proof of measles immunity / measles vaccination is required.

What we offer:

  • Collective agreement: In addition to an attractive salary based on a collective agreement (65%, E13) with an annual special payment, you benefit from long-term security through company pension schemes
  • Mobility: Free public transport in all of Hessen (Free State Ticket Hessen)
  • Campus: Our attractive university hospital campus offers a modern cafeteria, various cafes, and opportunities to rest in numerous green spaces. A walk on the riverside of the Main offers relaxation during breaks
  • Work-Life-Balance: We offer childcare in our daycare center (more information can be found here), child care during holidays, and many attractive offers for health promotion
  • Professional development: Internal and external training for your professional development

Women are underrepresented in these positions at the University Hospital Frankfurt. Applications from women are therefore particularly welcome. Disabled applicants are preferred if they have the same personal and professional qualifications.
