6895| University Medical Center Groningen, Department of Medical Oncology| Post-doc in cancer biology: 'targeting replication stress in cancer cells'| Working environment
We have an exciting opportunity for a post-doctoral researcher, funded by the European Research Council (ERC). The position will be initially for 1 year, with the possibility of extension for 3 years. The position is available in the research group of prof. Marcel van Vugt, which is focused on cell cycle regulation and DNA damage responses in the context of cancer. The research group is embedded in the Department of Medical Oncology of the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) in the Netherlands, where oncological patient care is coordinated with preclinical and fundamental research on the biology and treatment of cancer. The lab is surrounded by other labs that study chromatin biology and genome instability. More information on current research topics can be found on our website: www.vanvugtlab.com

Job description
You will work on a project aiming to elucidate how cancer cells can cope with high levels of replication stress. A characteristic of many cancers is their high degree of genomic instability, which is thought to be fueled by replication stress. In this project, which is funded by a recently awarded ERC consolidator grant, we aim to unravel how oncogene-induced replication stress is resolved throughout the cell cycle, with a particular focus on mitosis. You will use biochemical microscopy and genetic approaches. Within this project, we, will ultimately validate our findings in patient material and ex vivo cultures of primary tumor material.
