Beschreibung: The group of Prof. Gerhard Behre (gerhard.behre@medizin.uni-leipzig.de) from the Division of Hematology and Oncology at Leipzig University is seeking for a highly motivated PhD student (biologischer Doktorand, E13 65%) that wants to join our research group. The focus of our work is on basic molecular and cellular investigations of leukemia biology, especially in the biology of small (and long) non-coding RNAs and their role in initiation and maintenance of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). For further information please read our recent publications (e.g. Wurm et al., Nature Comm. 2017) or contact us. In the planned project, we intend to study the suitability of specific microRNAs as therapeutic targets in AML. This includes basic in vitro investigations as well as verification in appropriate mouse models. After a initial period of trainung, the PhD candidate should work independently and self-motivated, should particapte in writing research grants and scientific publications and presenting results at international research meetings.
Methoden: RIP (RNA immune precipitation)-sequencing, microRNA profiling and whole transcriptome profiling with next generation sequencing (NGS) with subsequent bioinformatics using Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA) and functional analysis of microRNAs, e.g. with CRISPR/Cas9 technology and in vivo AML xeno graft mouse models (PDX-AML-cells in NSG mice)
