The Laboratory for Cell Death Research & Therapy, headed by Patrizia Agostinis, seeks a highly motivated and skilled Postdoctoral Researcher to join the team.
Our team is studying autophagy in cancer and stromal cells as a main modifier of the tumor microenvironment and anti-tumor immunity. We recently defined a critical role for tumor vasculature-associated autophagy in cancer dissemination and growth. We are now interested in unravelling how autophagy impacts the tumor-stroma dialogue with particular focus on tumor immunosurvelliance and immunotherapy responses.
Our goal is to pursue an innovative and interdisciplinary research theme, covering research from integrated omics to translational cancer immunotherapy, in order to harness autophagy regulated mechanisms for therapeutic benefits and for the improvement of immunotherapy.
As a postdoc you will perform basic & preclinical research focused on the role of stromal cell-associated autophagy in immunosurveillance and anti-tumor immunity using transgenic mouse models.
You will supervise and support PhD students and contribute to several research projects of the lab, have a collaborative spirit and liaise with collaborators, clinicians, computational biologists, but also technology transfer experts and industrial collaborators.
You need to be able to organise and troubleshoot your work independently, document it thoroughly and communicate results and experiences with the team in a transparent and professional manner.
