Designation/Position- Postdoctoral Fellow Position 2019 in Norway

University of Oslo, Norway invites application for Postdoctoral Fellow Position 2019 in Norway from eligible and interested candidates

About- The postdoc will take part in a basic project with strong clinical implications. The aim of the project is to identify new targets for improved treatment of B cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (BCP-ALL). A key feature of the project is modulation of the cAMP/PKA pathway in regulation of cellular processes such as DNA damage responses, oxidative stress and autophagy. In addition to experiments on cell cultures of primary ALLs and ALL-derived cell lines, in vivo experiments on an established xenograft model of ALL in NSG mice will have a central role.Postdoctoral Fellow Position 2019 in Norway
