Postdoc in Trans­la­tional Im­muno-On­co­logy

University of Helsinki

Helsinki, Finland

The immuno-oncology research team coordinated by Dr Jeroen Pouwels at the University of Helsinki Faculty of Medicine is looking to hire an ambitious Postdoc in Translational Immuno-Oncology.

The candidate will join a collaborative immuno-oncology project that seeks new ways to sensitize breast cancer to immune checkpoint inhibitors. The candidate will join a translational research group which is part of the Medical Faculty’s Research Programs Unit (RPU;) and is aligned with the Finnish Flagship Programme iCAN. The specific project advertised here is funded by an Academy of Finland project grant of Dr Jeroen Pouwels. A novel method to grow 3D cultures of intact fragments of patient-derived tissue (Patient-Derived Explant Cultures), which preserves the human tumor microenvironment including the immune-contexture, reflects inter- and intra-patient tumor heterogeneity and, importantly, can assess the efficacy of novel treatment regimens on real human tumors (Haikala et al., Nature Comm. 2019; PMID: 30728358), will play a central role in the project.

Candidate requirements:

  • PhD degree in a relevant field
  • Highly motivated with strong interest in translational cancer research
  • Documented experience in experimental research; experience in immuno-oncology or immunology is not necessary but highly valued
  • Good team player
  • The working language of the research group is English, the chosen candidate must be able to communicate fluently in English
