Postdoctoral Position in the group of Véronique Orian-Rousseau, Karlsruhe, Germany
 

I am looking for a creative and motivated postdoctoral scientist to join my research group at

the Institute of Toxicology and Genetics, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Karlsruhe,

Germany. Our group focuses on the study of the molecular mechanisms of action of cell

adhesion molecules in tumor progression and metastasis with a focus on CD44. We have

recently demonstrated the collaboration of CD44v6 and the MET receptor tyrosine kinase in

pancreatic cancer (Matzke-Ogi et al., Gastroenterology 2016). The proposed project aims at

understanding the role of CD44 in the formation of pre-metastatic and metastatic niches in

pancreatic cancer.

Candidates should have a PhD in cancer or a related field and should be experienced in

molecular and cellular biology methods. Experience in animal experiments and in FACS

analysis is highly recommended.

Applicants should have at least one paper as first author in a peer-reviewed journal. Excellent

Please send a motivation letter and a complete CV containing a list of publications, a summary

of past research and contact information of 2 to 3 referees to veronique.orianrousseau(at)
