A 3-year position as Postdoctoral Fellow is available at the Department of Medical Genetics, Oslo University Hospital (OUS).
Department of Medical Genetics at OUS is Norway’s largest medical genetics department with over 200 employees. The department is responsible for diagnostics of rare and inherited diseases, and runs a national research infrastructure for high-throughput DNA sequencing at the Norwegian Consortium for Sequencing and Personalized Medicine (www.norseq.org). The research section in the department has 7 research groups (https://www.ous-research.no/meg/) working in various fields of medical genetics, autoimmune, neurological, cardiovascular and psychiatric disorders, epigenetics causes of disease, bioinformatics and breast cancer.
The position will be associated with the ‘breast cancer heterogeneity and oncoimmunology’ project group and is financed by the Norwegian Cancer Society through the project: «Single cell characterization of intratumor heterogeneity and breast cancer evolution: prognostic and therapeutic value». The lab has longstanding collaborations with oncologists at OUS and Akershus University Hospital and conducts translational research in numerous clinical trials run by the oncologists. Currently, the lab is capitalizing on these connections with an ambitious new initiative that aims to merge the exciting new field of single-cell analysis with clinical studies collecting tumor biopsies serially sampled from patients treated in neoadjuvant setting. Currently, the major focus of the lab is to characterize how the tumor micro-environment determines tumor behavior and response to cancer therapies.
