The Klinikum rechts der Isar university hospital of the Tech­nical University of Munich is a major Euro­pean center of medical care and edu­cation and teaching with 1,161 beds and around 5,500 emplo­yees. Every year around 60,000 patients bene­fit from in­patient and around 250,000 patients from out­patient care. The hos­pital is a supra-maximal care home that covers the entire spec­trum of modern medicine. Since 2003, the Klinikum rechts der Isar is an insti­tute of public law of the Free State of Bavaria. The Department of Medicine III (Hema­tology / Onco­logy) at the Tech­nische Universi­tät München (TUM) is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Scientist (f/m/d) in the group of Prof. Dr. Katharina Götze. Area of research: We are focused on study­ing leukemic stem cells in acute myeloid leu­kemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syn­dromes (MDS). In parti­cular, we are interested in the inter­action between leu­kemic stem cells and their micro­environ­ment (niche) in the bone marrow to iden­tify and target criti­cal path­ways direc­ting clonal evo­lution and enabling sur­vival of leukemic stem cells through inter­action with the stem cell niche. Current pro­jects have an emphasis on epi­genetic changes in the bone marrow micro­environ­ment during clonal evo­lution in MDS and AML and involve use of trans­genic and trans­plantation mouse models as well as pri­mary human bone marrow samples. Our pro­jects are funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG, SFB 1243), the José Carreras Leu­kämie-Stiftung (EPISTROMA) and the German Cancer Consor­tium (Deutsches Konsortium für Trans­lationale Krebs­forschung, DKTK). Prerequisite: Suitable appli­cants (f/m/d) must have a Ph.D. or M.D. degree, a strong back­ground in cell and mole­cular bio­logy, and expe­rience with mouse models. Prior expe­rience with flow cyto­metry, bio­informatics, geno­mics or compu­tational bio­logy is highly desir­able. We are looking for an ambi­tious, highly moti­vated and enthu­siastic researcher (f/m/d) with an ability to work in a team. Appli­cants (f/m/d) interested in trans­lational cancer research, cancer bio­logy, hema­topoieis, leu­kemia and/or stem cells are en­couraged to apply. As a post­doc (f/m/d) in our group you should be able to drive and contri­bute to research pro­jects, indepen­dently develop new research ideas and mentor PhD / MD students. Payment is accor­ding to tarif (TV-L). We particu­larly encourage female scien­tists to apply. Disabled appli­cants (f/m/d) will be preferen­tially con­sidered in case of equi­valent quali­fication.
