Receptor Tyrosine Kinases (RTKs) signalling is essential in development, adult homeostasis, and diseases. The ability of RTKs to respond to multiple signals (e.g. different ligands) from the environment underpins health and is compromised in diseases, like breast cancer. This project will uncover the molecular basis of RTK signalling specificity using omics methods and functional assays in two- and three-dimensional (3D) breast cancer cell models.

The position provides the opportunity to develop skills in omics and cellular assays within a well-resourced, international, and ambitious team. Holding a PhD in relevant biomedical disciplines, having extensive knowledge and proven experience in biochemistry, molecular and cell biology (specifically, 3D cell culture), being enthusiast, and self-motivated are essentials.
