The position is one of three PhD positions within the project Personalized treatment of small-cell lung cancer, which is an interdisciplinary project involving oncology, bioinformatics, and materials science. The overall aim of this project is to develop an affordable, cost-effective, and easily implemented diagnostic classification system for small-cell lung cancer (SCLC). This will enable us, among other things, to assess the extent of disease, predict treatment response and disease development including risk of brain metastases, and estimate time to relapse and survival time.
The PhD candidate will focus on bioinformatics analyses of genomic data from SCLC patients, including single omics (single cell transcriptomics, tumor DNA sequencing) and integrative multi-omics analyses to uncover associations with clinically relevant parameters. The position is available at the bioinformatics and gene regulation research group.
Your immediate leader is Professor Pål Sætrom.
