Published Deadline Location
12 Feb 29 Feb Amsterdam
The Division of Tumor Biology & Immunology of the Netherlands Cancer Institute (NKI) seeks a Research technician (MSc/BSc)

Job description

Project information:
The focus of the joint research line of the teams of Dr. Marleen Kok and Dr. Karin de Visser is on studying the systemic aspects of the anti-cancer immune response in breast cancer patients. Important findings generated utilizing sophisticated mouse tumor models need urgent validation to the clinic. We analyze immunosuppressive features in parallel with the effector function of immune cells using high-dimensional multi-parameter flow cytometry (FACS) in fresh blood samples of breast cancer patients. In addition, we use single-cell RNA sequencing and other complex technologies to study the tumor microenvironment to further characterize the most crucial immunosuppressive cells. This work enables better understanding of response to immunotherapy (anti-PD1) in breast cancer and will help the discovery of novel immunomodulatory targets. You will work in a collaborative and enthusiastic international team, including postdocs, MDs, PhD students and research technicians.
