Project Description


Our research and the Group
  • Current work is focused on understanding the biological function of proteins involved in regulation of histone and DNA methylation and how they contribute to cancer.
  •  Moreover, the group has a particular interest in blood and brain cancers, and has developed several cancer relevant mouse models that are used both for the understanding of the role of specific proteins in cancer and for the identification of potential novel targets for the development of novel anti-cancer therapies.



Project/The research project(s)
  • The successful applicants will work on projects related to understanding the role of specific chromatin-associated proteins in transcription and cell-fate determination. 
  • The applicants may also be involved in using CRISPR-CAS9 libraries in combination with relevant mouse models for glioblastoma or leukaemia to identify potential novel targets for anti-cancer therapy.

  • A PhD in Life Sciences 
  • Proven track record with publications in international journals 
  • Documented experience in molecular and cellular biology 
  • Previous experience in biochemistry, stem cell biology and/or mouse genetics would be an advantage
