Job description

As part of an international consortium of experts in immuno-oncology, the laboratory of Biochemistry at Ghent University's Faculty of Veterinary Medicine recently obtained a grant for a prestigious and EU-funded project that focuses on ameliorating the immunotherapeutic efficacy in triple-negative breast cancer patients. The project received the acronym MAGNOLIA, which stands for MAppinG adaptatioN Of tripLe negative breast cancer microenvironments to ImmunotherApy. The laboratory of Biochemistry will contribute to the project by identifying novel immunotherapeutic targets through the use of relevant mouse model for triple-negative breast cancer and multi-omics analyses. The project work will be incorporated in a Joint PhD with the Jules Bordet Institute (Université Libre de Bruxelles, ULB). PhD candidates will have the chance to work in a rapidly evolving field with high clinical need for better therapies, and will have the ability to gain additional experience in the labs of our international project partners (situated in Canada, France and Germany).

Job profile

We are looking for a motivated Master with a bioscience-oriented diploma that is eager to perform preclinical and highly translational research in the field of immuno-oncology with the aim to obtain a PhD. The candidate ideally has experience with in vivo mouse work and has a FELASA certificate to perform animal experimentation. Previous experience in the field of oncology is recommended, but not a must. The candidate needs to be a team player and is able to finish work under time pressure.

How to apply

Candidates can apply by sending in their CV, score sheets of both Bachelor and Master studies, the contact details of 2 referees and a motivational letter that explains why they are most suited for the job to Evelyne.Meyer@ugent.be and to Jonas.steenbrugge@ugent.be.
