Post-doctoral Researcher – Functional epigenomics in leukemia (m/f/d)

Tätigkeitsfeld: Ärztliches Personal
Beschäftigungsumfang: Vollzeit


Our research lab is situated in the Robert Bosch Center for Tumor Diseases (RBCT). RBCT is a newly established translational cancer research institute located at the Bosch Health Campus in Stuttgart, Germany, in direct proximity to the Robert Bosch Hospital (RBK). As an integral part of the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) South West and the Comprehensive Cancer Center Tübingen-Stuttgart, RBCT is exclusively dedicated to innovative cancer research and treatment.
Our group focuses on unraveling complex gene regulatory networks that govern the pathogenesis of hematological malignancies, including myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML). We employ cutting-edge techniques such as NGS-coupled multiomics, high-throughput screening, and gene interference or editing on tumor cell lines, primary patient samples, and mouse tumor models. Our primary research goal is to identify novel molecular biomarkers and therapeutic targets/approaches in human MDS or AML.


Lead or participate in research projects involving epigenetic mechanisms driving human leukemia using state-of-the-art multidisciplinary molecular techniques including:
Standard wet lab techniques, including molecular cloning, DNA/RNA/protein detection, immunoprecipitation, cell culture, cell transfection, flow cytometry, RNA interference, gene editing, retro- or lentiviral transduction, etc.
Advanced methods coupled with next generation sequencing (NGS), such as ChIP-seq, CUT&RUN or CUT&TAG, RNA-seq, ATAC-seq, CLIP/eCLIP, HiC/capture HiC
NGS data analysis and interpretation
Ex vivo or in vivo tumor modelling

Internal and external collaborations to achieve the fulfillment of research goals
Supervisory duties on junior members in the lab
Attending and presenting research data at local, national and international seminars or meetings
Summarizing work results for scientific publications


Adequate professional qualifications:
Completion of Ph.D., M.D., or an equivalent doctorate degree in life science
Extensive research training in molecular biology, cell biology, epigenetics or relevant disciplines
Documented experience through scientific publications
Knowledge in tumor biology and RNA biology would be a plus
First-hand experience in gene gain- or loss-of-function and NGS methods would be highly desired

Enthusiasm for engaging in cancer research and awareness of the translational significance of research work
Capability of working independently as well as good spirit of team working
Openness to personal growth and ongoing learning initiatives
Competence in interpersonal communication, presentation, and scientific writing
