Job description

We are seeking ambitious candidates with a strong interest in in vivo modelling of human cancer and a wish to be part of an interactive team of several scientific and clinical research groups working on translational hematology. The successful candidates will join the lab of Prof. Bo Porse (Finsen Laboratory/BRIC/DanStem) and thus take part in the highly dynamic research environment centered on understanding the role of stem cells in hematological cancers, while working as staff scientists within the realms of the newly established Program for Translational Hematology. The staff scientist positions are dedicated to in-depth characterization of sampled material from leukemia patients. Practically, the main tasks will center on flow cytometry based sorting of patient material and subsequent generation of patient-derived xenografts (PDX) using state-of-the-art modeling in mice.
