|| Within the Institute of Pathology, the Working Group Sarcoma is interested on the pathobiology of soft tissue sarcomas, a group of histologically and genetically heterogeneous malignant tumors of mesenchymal origin. The project of the PhD candidate (m/f) will focus on the functional and diagnostic role of the transcription factor SOX11 in different sarcoma entities by using a broad spectrum of methods and techniques (e.g. cell culture, RNA sequencing, protein-protein interactions, ChIP-seq, computational analysis). We are looking for a highly motivated PhD student (m/f) with a background in molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology or related disciplines. Applicants must have a MSc degree or equivalent in Biology, Biochemistry or related fields. Expertise in molecular biology is desired. We expect enthusiasm for science and strong work ethics. The Institute of Pathology offers a friendly and productive interdisciplinary work atmosphere and state-of-the-art equipment. The PhD student will be part of the local PhD Program, which offers interdisciplinary practical training, scientific conferences, mentoring by a thesis committee of experts in the field, and a highly stimulating international research environment.
Applications (cover letter, statement of research interests, CV, qualifications and contact information of two referees) should be sent in one pdf-document to Dr. Marcus Renner: firstname.lastname@example.org
