We are recruiting a post doc with strong background in genetics and/or cell biology to our research team in Translational Research at the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial diseases, University of Helsinki. You will be part of multifaceted projects aimed at understanding the genetics and epigenetics of osteosarcoma and stem cells; developing 3D models for osteosarcoma in vitro diagnostics and applications of biomaterials. Experience with RNA sequencing, bioinformatics, biomaterials or tissue engineering is an advantage. Strong motivation to learn new techniques is necessary. The successful applicant must hold a PhD and post-doctoral experience. The position is for 2 years, with the possibility for extension. The position will be filled as soon as the right person is found. (15.1.2021)

Open position for a Postdoctoral Fellow in Hematological Single-Cell Genomics, University of Helsinki. Catching the early transcriptomic and genetic events in hematopoietic progenitor cells in bone marrow failure (BMF), and correlating these during progression to myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and further to acute myeloid leukemia (AML), may allow therapeutic intervention before the point-of-no-return. This project, supported by the iCAN Digital Precision Cancer Medicine Flagship, seeks to expand our understanding of the inherited mutations that cause BMF/MDS as well as the acquired changes that occur during progression to leukemia, using state-of-the-art molecular technologies to guide leukemia precision medicine. The Postdoctoral Fellow will be leading this effort by studying how leukemias arise from premalignant conditions utilizing single-cell and bulk DNA/RNA sequencing technologies, machine learning and data analytics. Deadline for applications is February 19, 2021.
