Postdoctoral Fellow – Leveraging Conditional Synthetic Lethal Relationships

Switzerland, Basel-Town, Basel

The Molecular Targeted Therapeutics (MTT) Group at Roche Basel is looking for a talented post-doctoral candidate to study conditional lethal relationships (CLS) in carcinoma in order to identify novel targets for therapeutic intervention.  The aim of the successful candidate will be to test CLS hypotheses using cutting edge modalities to characterize and identify novel associations in genetically defined populations. His/her research will help elucidating how different genetic alterations can lead to dependencies not found in healthy cells, and if these dependencies can be leveraged for patient benefit. In this position you will: 

  • Perform cutting-edge research into identifying CLS relationships
  • Address fundamental scientific questions, be responsible for the design and execution of experimental work, conduct data analysis, and keep accurate electronic records
  • Attend and present at internal and international meetings
  • Be expected to publish data in top scientific journals
This position is sponsored by the Roche Postdoctoral Fellowship Program and is limited to two years
