The Department of Biology at Ludwig Maximilians University Munich
Now hiring: 3 PhD Students & 1 PostDoc for scRNA-seq in Cancer Evolution.
A new collaborative research center established at the LMU in Munich investigates the evolution of hematopoetic neoplasms and in this context hire 3 PhD Students & 1 PostDoc for scRNA-seq data generation and analysis.
While the evolutionary nature of cancer and hematopoietic neoplasms is well established, it is challenging to generate and analyze data to quantify the dynamics of this Darwinian process. This is a clinical problem, for example when therapy-resistant cancer cells relapse after an initially successful treatment. Hence, patients die because the tumor is able to evolve.
