In this project you will investigate how chromosomal instability shapes karyotype landscapes and how these influence fitness and evolution of cancer cells and non-cancer cells. You will exploit state-of-the-art technologies including single cell DNA and RNA sequencing and engineer new CIN models using CRISPR genome engineering. For this Dutch Cancer Society-funded project, we are currently looking for a postdoctoral fellow with up to 3 years of funding. We welcome applications from bench biologists as well as bioinformaticians. In the Foijer lab, you will work in an international team consisting of 9 PhD students, 4 postdocs and 4 technicians. You will closely collaborate with a PhD student who already is appointed on this project.


The position is for one year with a possibility for extension till a maximum of 3 years. Your salary will be a maximum of € 4.615,- gross per month (scale 10), depending on your qualifications and relevant experience, based on a full-time appointment. In addition, the UMCG will offer you 8% holiday pay, and 8.3% end-of-year bonus. The conditions of employment comply with the Collective Labour Agreement for Medical Centres (CAO-UMC).
