The University of Luxembourg is a multilingual, international research University.
The University of Luxembourg has the following vacancy in its newly established Cancer Cell Biology Group (Prof. Dr. Daniel Abankwa) at the Life Sciences Research Unit, Faculty of Science, Technology and Communication :
Doctoral candidate (PhD student) in the field of RAS cancer drug development (M / F)
The PhD student will work in the Cancer Cell Biology group under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Daniel Abankwa, who recently relocated from Finland.
The student will be associated with the doctoral programme in Systems and Molecular Biomedicine.
The Cancer Cell Biology group focuses on the most notorious oncogene RAS. Basically all cancers display misregulated RAS signaling.
Our mission is to eRASe cancer (eRASeCancer.wordpress.com). We are particularly interested in :
We will employ a broad spectrum of techniques, including molecular cell biology, with application of quantitative fluorescence methods, high-
throughput chemo-genetics approaches and in vivo models. Moreover, we collaborate with several international research groups, as well as pharma / biotech companies in Europe and the US.
