Postdoctoral Scientist (m/f/d)
- Strong background in molecular and cellular biology demonstrated by peer-reviewed publications and a strong interest in liver tumor biology
- Excellent experimental and analytical skills in advanced cell culture techniques and mouse genetics including animal experimentation are mandatory
- Familiarity with multi-omics datasets are a plus
The current project aims at analysing the function of the receptor RAGE in liver progenitor cells during acute and chronic liver damage, hepatitis and development and progression of liver cancer. The candidate will apply gain-of-function and loss-of-function approaches in genetically modified mice and in vitro cell cultures to define the role of this molecule in chronic liver damage, inflammation, tumor cell formation and invasion using state-of-the-art transgenic and global gene expression technologies.
This project is part of the DFG funded research consortium TR-209 "Liver cancer".
