Functieomschrijving

This position is for an ambitious postdoctoral bioinformatician with a strong interest for next-generation sequencing data processing and analysis. You will work in an interdisciplinary team, to answer fundamental questions in cancer biology. In support to “wet-lab” scientists, you will implement existing or build custom pipelines to process NGS data, such as GROseq, RNAseq and ChIPseq.

Topics of study in our lab range from unravelling new regulatory molecules that modulate cancer stem cell functions, studying the plasticity of cancer stem cells, the dynamics of stem cells during tumor development, and the development of improved therapies for colorectal cancers.

Bedrijfsomschrijving

The AMC is more than just a hospital. It is a world in which patient care, research and education are integrated, and in which people are always central. It is an academic world full of possibilities for talented individuals that are looking for a place where they can excel. Thinking big, daring to dream, cooperating internationally. And never letting yourself be put off by ‘It’s not possible’ or ’It won’t work anyway’. That is the AMC mentality.

We are offering a position in the Laboratory for Experimental Oncology (LEXOR) within the Center for Experimental and Molecular Medicine at the Academic Medical Center, Amsterdam. In this laboratory, a team of over 30 scientists studies the biological aspects of cancer. A wide array of techniques and systems are used to better understand the mechanisms driving tumor development, -progression, and resistance against therapy.
