Tackling immunotherapy resistance

Job description

Project information
Tumor heterogeneity, immune dysfunction and therapy resistance are among the most substantial challenges that limit durable benefit of cancer (immuno)therapies. Using powerful function-based genomics, we screen for novel therapeutic targets to tackle those clinical problems. In this way we develop new concepts for rational combination treatments, which target both tumor and immune cells, thereby simultaneously eliminating the patient’s tumor and harnessing its immune system. This has already culminated in discoveries that we aim to translate to the benefit of the patient.
For this position, we seek a bioinformatician who will collaborate with wet lab PhD students and postdocs on genetic screen analysis, clinical data analysis and related bioinformatic questions. Furthermore, you will be responsible for building and maintaining genomic analysis pipelines, using the latest best practices.
