Two Postdoc positions

Offentlig forvaltning

Two 3-years postdoc positions are available in the project group of Dr. Marina Vietri at The Department of Molecular Cell Biology, Institute for Cancer Research, Oslo. The project group is part of the Cellular Membrane Dynamics team led by Prof. Harald Stenmark. Our group is interested in understanding the connection between the dynamics of cellular membranes and cancer development.

The Institute for Cancer Research is part of the Oslo University Hospital, the largest academic hospital in Scandinavia. Our group is also member of a Norwegian Centre of Excellence (Centre for Cancer Cell Reprogramming, CanCell) funded by the Norwegian Research Council, and consisting of six groups which study molecular mechanisms of tumorigenesis (membrane dynamics, signaling pathways, chromatin regulation, metabolism).
