Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship in Tumor Immunology
NCMM focuses particularly on disease mechanisms where Norway has clear strengths and investigates disease mechanisms in cancer, immune disorders and cardiovascular diseases.
The Taskén group at NCMM investigates signal networks and targeting strategies in immune cells and cancer cells as well as T cell immune regulation and the role in tumor immunology. The group has established the Chemical Biology Screening Platform that serves the Oslo region and is now also starting projects pursuing different targets in cancer and immune cells. At the moment we are searching for a postdoctoral fellow:
Post-doctoral research fellow – Tumor immune evasion mechanisms
A position is open for a postdoc on a project funded by the Norwegian Cancer Society with focus on molecular mechanisms of tumor immune evasion by prostaglandin E2 and regulatory T cells. We are capitalizing on new technologies developed in the group and will pursue an ambitious plan to do both systems level analyses and development of tools that disrupt signal complexes that would reverse suppression of anti-tumor immunity at the level of PGE2 action and specific cAMP signalling units, as well as at the level of Treg action, both with potential therapeutic applications. Furthermore, we will examine cross-talk with other established immune therapies such as immune checkpoint inhibitors and CAR-therapy in experimental models.
About the position: Director, Professor Kjetil Taskén (email@example.com). Inquiries regarding technical aspects of the application can be directed to Nina Modahl (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The application should include a cover letter summarizing the applicant’s career and past research accomplishments (1-2 pages), CV and a list of publications, copies of certificates and grades, and names of three references.
