Join us to integrate cutting-edge developmental biology findings into translational cancer research to tackle the clinical heterogeneity of neuroblastoma, a childhood tumor with unment clinical needs. This multidisciplinary international collaborative research builds on our recent results (Kameneva et al., Nat Commun. 2022) and aims to leverage single-cell transcriptomics data (Kameneva, Artemov et al., Nat Genet. 2021; Jansky et al., Nat Genet. 2021) for uncovering novel therapeutic targets and markers that might be streamlined into improved neuroblastoma treatment protocols.

We are looking for a talented & motivated PhD student

  • Curiosity-driven, proactive, able to work independently as well as in a team
  • MSc (Mgr. or equivalent) degree, background in molecular and/or cell biology, eager to learn and adopt new skills
  • Motivated to address scientifically challenging problems, able to formulate working hypotheses and propose ways of their testing
  • With positive mindset, communicative and friendly, willing to help others if needed

We offer a dynamic & stimulating research environment

  • Work on an interesting and clinicially relevant project together with excellent international partners (Igor Adameyko’s and Frank Westermann’s groups)
  • Work with unique in vitro/in vivo models and patient samples, engaging with clinicians, pathologists, and researchers at three EU pediatric oncology centers & COG biobank
  • Excellent instrumentation and support in skill development, including advanced methods, research supervision, grant and manuscript writing, data analysis and presentation skills
  • 4-year funded position (scholarship + salary from the project NW24-07-00017 funded by the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic)
