Тип: PostDoc vacancy;


A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Professor Momo Bentires-Alj at the Department of Biomedicine (DBM) in Basel, Switzerland. The candidate will study the effects of the immune system on breast cancer metastasis using both preclinical models and clinical specimens.

Selected publications of our lab include: 1- Cessation of CCL2 inhibition accelerates breast cancer metastasis by promoting angiogenesis. Bonapace L, et al., Nature 2014. 2- PIK3CAH1047R induces multipotency and multi-lineage mammary tumors. Koren S, et al., Nature 2015. 3- Hippo kinases LATS1/2 control human breast cell fate via crosstalk with ERα. Britschgi A, et al., Nature 2017.

Your position
The tasks include: a) studies on immune system changes within the lymph nodes during breast cancer progression to metastasis; and b) studies on targeting signaling molecules to harness anti-tumor immunity. The candidate will use pathophysiologically relevant models, clinical specimens, and state-of-the-art technologies (e.g., multiphoton intravital imaging, single cell analysis) to identify the mechanisms underlying metastases

Your profile
A strong background in immunology is required. The successful candidate should be highly motivated, have a PhD in immunology, and a strong interest in molecular and cellular mechanisms of metastasis.

We offer you
A stimulating, challenging and interdisciplinary translational research environment, state-of-the-art technologies and core facilities, and attractive employment conditions. The DBM is an international institute pursuing basic, translational and clinical research, with access to cutting-edge core facilities.
