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. In particular my group focuses on the subclassification of colorectal cancers and the quantitative analysis of stem cell properties and evolutionary dynamics in developing and established malignancies.
