Job Description

The Radiochemistry and Nuclear imaging Group at CIC biomaGUNE (San Sebastian) led by Dr. Jordi Llop, and the Laboratory of Cellular Oncology at IIS Biodonostia (San Sebastian) led by Dr. Estefanía Carrasco, invite motivated candidates to apply for a 3 years contract in oncology/molecular imaging science to obtain a doctoral degree. The project is focused on: (i) the assessment of the role of different genes in critical aspects of gastric cancer, specifically, in the regulation of gastric cancer stem cells; and (ii) the identification of therapeutic agents against them.

The PhD candidate will: (i) perform functional studies in cancer gastric cell lines and patient-derived gastric cancer stem cell cultures; (ii) screen a library of compounds; and (iii) evaluate the tumour targeting capacity, biodistribution and therapeutic efficacy of the most promising agents identified, both in patientderived subcutaneous gastric cancer xenografts and orthotopic gastric cancer models, using radiolabelling followed by dynamic positron emission tomography imaging.
