Open position for a post-doctoral researcher / PhD student in cancer biology at the University of Helsinki. The group of Dr. Paivi Pihlajamaa at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Helsinki, is seeking to recruit a highly motivated individual for a position of post-doctoral / doctoral researcher. The position is available from 1st October 2023 in an Academy of Finland -funded project that investigates the interplay of metabolic reprogramming, epigenetic regulatory landscape, and cancer cell proliferation. The position is available from October 2023 onwards and applications will be considered on a rolling basis until a suitable candidate is found.

The Chen’s research group at University of Helsinki is seeking a motivated doctoral researcher to contribute to a core project funded by the Academy of Finland. The project aims to investigate the role of RNA splicing and tissue environment in shaping human macrophage diverse phenotypes during obesity. In this study, we will use cutting-edge single-cell and spatial omics technologies, develop novel computational methods, perform multimodal data analysis and integration, and experimental validation to uncover key factors steering the progression of obesity-associated metabolic disorders. The selected candidate will play a pivotal role in computational data analysis and method development. Individuals with a strong interest and background in computational biology/bioinformatics are strongly encouraged to consider this opportunity. Deadline for applications is October 16, 2023.
