Master students

We are looking for motivated Master students.

Our group is focused on the understanding of molecular mechanisms involved in tumor progression and metastasis. We are specifically interested in the role of cell surface proteins such as receptor tyrosine kinases and cell adhesion molecules.

 

Please send your applications to veronique.orian-rousseau∂kit.edu

PhD Position in the group of Véronique Orian-Rousseau, Karlsruhe, Germany

I am looking for a creative and motivated student to join my research group for a PhD at the Institute of Toxicology and Genetics, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Karlsruhe, Germany. Our group focuses on the study of the molecular mechanisms of action of cell adhesion molecules in tumor progression and metastasis with a focus on CD44.  We have recently demonstrated a role of CD44 in Wnt signaling. CD44 is involved in activation and in maturation of LRP6. The proposed project aims at further dissecting the molecular mechanism of action of CD44 in this pathway.

Candidates should a sound background in cellular and molecular biology.

Excellent communication skills in spoken and written English are expected.

We offer a stimulating, diverse and international research environment.

Please send a motivation letter and a complete CV and contact information of at least one referee to veronique.orian-rousseau∂kit.edu. The position is available immediately.

Postdoctoral Position in the group of Véronique Orian-Rousseau, Karlsruhe, Germany

I am looking for a creative and engaged postdoctoral scientist to join my research group at the Institute of Toxicology and Genetics, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Karlsruhe, Germany. Our group focuses on the study of the molecular mechanisms of action of cell adhesion molecules in tumor progression and metastasis with a focus on CD44.  We have recently demonstrated the collaboration of CD44v6 and the MET receptor tyrosine kinase in pancreatic cancer (Matzke-Ogi et al., Gastroenterology 2016). The proposed project aims at understanding the role of CD44 in the formation of pre-metastatic and metastatic niches in pancreatic cancer.

Candidates should have a PhD in cancer or a related field and should be experienced in molecular and cellular biology methods. Experience in animal experiments and in FACS analysis is highly recommended.

Applicants should have at least one paper as first author in a peer-reviewed journal. Excellent communication skills in spoken and written English are expected.

Please send a motivation letter and a complete CV containing a list of publications, a summary of past research and contact information of 2 to 3 referees to veronique.orian-rousseau∂kit.edu. The position is available immediately for 1 year renewable 2 more years. The starting date is negotiable.
