Postdoctoral Research Position in the field of tumor
microenvironment and cellular cross talk in lung cancer
Fulltime, reference number 2020_29
The Max-Planck-Institute for Heart and Lung Research, Kerckhoff Institute, Department of Lung
Development and Remodeling in Molecular Mechanisms in Lung Cancer and Department of Internal
Medicine (Pulmonology/Oncology), at the Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen (JLU) offers the position of
a postdoctoral research fellow.
Our group’s aim is to develop novel treatment strategies for lung cancer, studying the molecular mechanisms,
tumor microenvironment, immunotherapy and lung tumor imaging. Our international team
offers an open, supportive, dynamic and motivating academic environment with excellent training
opportunities. We use a wide spectrum of methods: cloning, cell culture, co cultures (2D and 3D),
RNAseq, scRNAseq, FACS, ELISA, cell-based assays (proliferation, apoptosis, migration, invasion etc.),
immunohistochemistry, multicolor immunofluorescence, confocal microscopy, image analysis, lung tumor
xenograft/orthotropic and transgenic mouse models. For recent references: Salazar Y et al., J Clin

Place of work will be Bad Nauheim, the position is available immediately. We are looking for enthusiastic
and highly motivated applicant. Essential requirements for postdoctoral position applicants should
have a PhD or equivalent in a relevant subject with the appropriate experience and track record. For this
position, good knowledge of tissue culture, molecular and cellular biology approaches, biological assays
and cancer biology in general is essential. A demonstrated ability to communicate well, work within a
team and maintain good laboratory records are also expected. Experience on co-culture systems, microscopy,
mouse handling, mouse genetics, primary cell culture and cancer models will be advantageous.
