2013 Marie Curie PhD Position in Cancer Research at University of Copenhagen, Denmark

If you have questions about this aid arises, please visit the official source and ask your questions directly to the center.

As part of the “CAFFEIN” Marie Curie Initial Researcher Training network, we are offering a PhD position for the cells using genetically modified mice. Rho GTPases are major regulators of the cytoskeleton, thus affecting migration, adhesion, cell-cell contacts, endocytosis and gene expression. Rho GTPases are expected to play a crucial role in the generation and tumor-promoting role of cancer associated fibroblasts. Using fibroblast-specific deletion of Rho GTPases in mice and the application of tumor models, we want to address this question directly.

-The researcher must not have resided or carried out his/her main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Denmark for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the time of recruitment. Compulsory national service and/or short stays (such as holidays) are not taken into account. -A strong biological / biochemical education and background. -An excellent Master thesis. -A high enthusiasm for cancer research using mouse models. -As the project is conducted in collaboration between different labs in the EU willingness to travel and fluency in English are required.

Deadline:   The closing date for applications is January 31, 2013.
