New Training Opportunity within MEL-PLEX Network at OncoMark

Deadline for application: December 5th 2017

We are currently recruiting an early stage researcher for MEL-PLEX Project 12. The position will be available from January 2nd, 2018 for 6 months.

The successful candidate will be hosted at OncoMark (Ireland).

OncoMark is currently involved in a number of EU funded projects, including the pan-European academic/private sector research training network project called MEL-PLEX Identifying and validating a panel of master transcriptional regulators in advanced melanoma, using a systems transcriptomics and histology approach (Project 12).

Specific melanoma cohort data has been analysed and key network targets that regulate transcription have been identified. The candidate will validate these potential targets using tissue analysis techniques (WB, IHC) and process the data using advanced digital image analysis, statistical analysis and data driven systems modeling.

Two postdoctoral positions at Centre for Systems Medicine – Deadline November 30th 2016

The research group of Prof Jochen Prehn at the RCSI Centre for Systems Medicine and the Department of Physiology and Medical Physics is currently recruiting two postdoctoral fellows in Bioinformatics and Biostasts/Systems Medicine.

The group aims to identify novel prognostic and predictive biomarkers for the clinical management of colorectal cancer and other solid tumours. The team utilizes genomic and proteomic data sets as well as deterministic and data-driven systems modelling approaches on large clinical cohorts and pre-clinical cancer models to develop new stratification tools for genotoxic therapies and targeted therapies. The group collaborates within large European clinical and preclinical research networks funded by the European Union, Science Foundation Ireland (two recent Principal Investigator Awards) and the Irish Cancer Society, as well as with key industrial partners.

The laboratory is located in the heart of Dublin.
