Postdoctoral Position in Precision Cancer Medicine
Publication date: 2 October 2013
IRCC-UNIVERSITY OF TORINO, ITALY
Laboratory of Molecular Genetics
Prof. Alberto Bardelli
Postdoctoral positions are available to study the molecular basis of response and resistance to anti-cancer therapies. The focus of the research is the genomic evolution of cancer genomes in response to pathway-targeted drugs. Using post-genomic technologies, fully characterized tumor databases and liquid biopsies the candidates will couple alterations in genes involved in kinase-mediated signaling with clinical response to targeted therapies.
The research includes the development of parallel clinical trials to be run simultaneously in cellular and mouse models and in patients 1-3. A scientific background in cancer genetics and/or molecular pharmacology will be advantageous, but is not required.
The project will be carried out at the Institute for Cancer Research and Treatment - University of Torino Medical School (Italy); see the website for more details
The positions are supported by EU grants with competitive salary and benefits. Candidates must hold the equivalent of a MD or PhD degree.
