We are looking for a highly motivated and independent academic
staff to support our efforts in translational
hematology and the discoveries of new precision therapies targeting cancer stem
cells of myeloid malignancies, to commence March 1 2019.
The Wennerberg group at BRIC focuses on identifying new effective
precision cancer therapies. This is done with a systems-driven approach where
we combine chemical biology, phenotypic profiling, molecular profiling and
informatics to gain understanding of individual cancers, their drug resistance
mechanisms and how they may be targeted. Our ultimate goal is that our results
will lay the foundation for new types of cures for individual and subsequently
larger groups of cancer patients.
You will join a multi-disciplinary research team working on discovering
new strategies for personalized treatments of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and
myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS).
Your tasks will be to:
- Support the development of analysis methods for high throughput flow
cytometry drug screens with multidimensional readouts.
- Provide informatics support in the analysis of high throughput flow
cytometry screens aimed at identifying drugs that have the potential to target
or differentiate the cancer stem cells in AML and MDS patient samples.
- Contribute to and support the development of approaches to establish
understanding of differentiation hierarchies and potential stem cell phenotypes
of AML and MDS from flow cytometry and single cell sequencing data.
In addition, you may be expected to contribute to and support the ongoing
research projects in the group on an ad hoc basis when needed; disseminate your
expertise to new lab members and support the lab management.
We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic
candidate with the following competencies and experience:
Essential experience and skills
You have an MS or PhD in Life sciences or related,
You have documented experience in informatic
analyses of cell differentiation using multi-omics data
You have an active interest in translational
You have proven an ability to envision, plan and
execute a research project
A team player
Excellent English skills, written and spoken

Translational Hematology that joins several research groups at BRIC and
giving the you a dynamic and interactive work environment that is an
outstanding setting for making translational discoveries.
