PhD student position in cancer computational biology

 

To be a doctoral student means to devote oneself to a research project under supervision of experienced researchers and following an individual study plan. For a doctoral degree, the equivalent of four years of full-time doctoral education is required.

The research group

The Hausser lab researches quantitative principles in tumor biology. We do so along two research lines.

(1) Within a tumor, single cancer cells express different genes. These differences facilitate resistance against anti-cancer therapy because a given therapy may fail to eliminate the diversity of cancer cells. We are interested in mapping the evolutionary limits of this diversity, and in exploring how to exploit these limits to treat heterogeneous tumors.

(2) We research equations that state how key tumor properties relate to each other: cellular composition of the tumor, heterogeneity of cancer and immune cells found in the tumor, spatial organization, tumor growth rate, shedding rate of metastatic cells, and so on. Finding the laws of tumor biology has high potential for diagnostics, prognosis and to design immunotherapy, much like the laws of mechanics and aerodynamics presently support the design of cars and airplanes.

To do so, we perform cancer experiments in vitro and in vivo, we develop bioinformatics & data analysis, and articulate our findings into mathematical theory.

The lab is part of the department of Cell and Molecular Biology (CMB) is located in Biomedicum, a new interdisciplinary research center designed to concentrate much of the experimental research conducted at Karolinska Institutet Campus Solna under one roof to promote collaboration. Biomedicum houses approximately 1,200 researchers and other personnel and allows expensive equipment to be shared and utilised more effectively.

https://www.hausserlab.org

The doctoral student project and the duties of the doctoral student

You will investigate the interplay between the transcriptional heterogeneity of tumor cells, their fitness, and the spatial architecture of tumors. Specifically, what gene programs support the fitness of cancer cells in the different environments found in tumors? Can we formulate combination therapy that interfere with genes across environments to treat heterogeneous tumors?

To find out, you will analyze single-cell RNAseq and spatial transcriptomics data from patients. You will culture 3D tumor spheroids, perform single-cell RNAseq, CRISPR screening, flow cytometry and single cell sorting. You will use bioinformatics tools and multivariate statistics to analyze the data, as well as develop new approaches. You will articulate the patterns found into a mathematical theory. You will use the insight won to design treatments aimed at heterogeneous tumors, test these in vitro and validate them in vivo.

What do we offer?

Exciting science in a lab ideally positioned for you to learn how to do research at the interface between experimental and computational biology, in an area of direct medical relevance.

Postdoctoral researcher to study synergistic effects between DNA damaging cancer therapeutics and targeted agents for an industrial collaboration

 


The Helleday laboratory, at the Department of Translational Medicine and Chemical Biology, is located at SciLifeLab and consists of about 30 researchers, doctoral students, and postdocs. Our goal of the business is to improve current cancer treatment by utilizing defects in cancer cells to tailor specific drugs against all types of cancer, with minimal side effects. Our work includes both basic research and translational research and we have several collaborations between different disciplines. The research group is multidisciplinary with expertise in cell biology, biochemistry, drug chemistry and pharmacology from both academia and industry.

Your mission

Cancer is often characterized by genome instability which is one of the enabling characteristics of cancer. Along the progression of cancer, mutations occurring in the genome maintenance and surveillance systems endanger the integrity of the genome. This genome instability results in new mutations and genomic rearrangements driving cancer progression via selection of favourable phenotypes. However, genomic instable cancer cells are more vulnerable to DNA damage than non-malignant cells since their DNA repair machinery often is deficient. This cancer cell vulnerability, along with the high proliferation rate of cancer cells, enables the usage of DNA damaging cancer treatment, such as ionizing radiation and chemotherapy, which have been used in cancer treatment for nearly a century.

The goal of targeted cancer therapy is to selectively kill cancer cells based on their molecular survival mechanisms. DNA repair is as a promising cancer target as many cancers have chronic replication stress and deficiencies in the DNA damage response. Moreover, combining DNA damaging chemo- and radiotherapy with inhibitors of DNA repair can lead to improved treatment responses, reduced resistance to treatments, as well as lowering of effective doses and thereby reduced toxicity to healthy tissues. We have characterized new factors regulating DNA damage repair that can be harnessed for targeted cancer therapy approaches, and now seek to find synergistic interactions between our drug candidates and current chemotherapeutics as well as radiation therapy to optimize drug partners for future cancer therapy.

We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher who will investigate the synergistic effects of currently used chemotherapeutics and radiation therapy between new targeted cancer drug candidates. The candidate will work in tight collaboration between the Helleday laboratory and an industrial partner.

Your profile

Applicants must have a doctorate degree in cancer molecular biology and prior experience in cancer drug development is highly appreciated. We prefer applicants to have experience in working with chemotherapeutics and ionizing radiation as well as targeted cancer therapeutics. Candidates must have expertise in conducting drug synergy assays with cancer cell lines and excellent mammalian cell culture skills.

Applicant should have a degree of theoretical knowledge on the DNA damage response (DDR) including DNA repair pathways, especially homologous recombination repair and Fanconi Anemia repair. Moreover, applicant should understand the mechanisms of action of main cancer therapeutics. In addition, the candidate should have practical knowledge on molecular methods to study DDR including experience and skills in basic molecular biology methods such as flow cytometry, western blotting and confocal microscopy.

Furthermore, the candidate must have very good knowledge of the English language and be able to express themselves both orally and in writing in a professional manner. Understanding Swedish is a plus. The role requires experience in project management, analytical thinking and excellent documenting and presentation skills. It is an advantage if applicants have research experience from abroad. Good interpersonal skills and prior work in an industrial setting are desirable.

 It is considered as an advantage if you have completed your doctoral degree within the last three years, if there are special reasons, your degree may have been completed earlier. Applicants who have not completed a doctorate at the end of the application period may also apply, provided that all requirements for a completed degree are met before the (intended) date of employment. This must be substantiated by the applicant's main supervisor, director or equivalent.
