PhD Student and Postdoctoral positions are available to work on a project on oncogene-induced DNA replication stress that is being funded by an ERC Advanced Investigator Grant (REPLISTRESS; October 2018-September 2023). The goals of the project are to understand the mechanisms by which oncogenes induce DNA replication stress and to identify the key pathways, whose inhibition leads to synthetic lethality in cells that have oncogene-induced DNA replication stress. The methodology employed utilizes high throughput sequencing to examine nascent DNA replication, transcription and patterns of genomic instability.
Interested candidates can send their CV, unofficial grades from their Bachelor studies and short motivation letter to Thanos Halazonetis
