The group of Prof. dr. Geert Kops currently has a vacancy for a Postdoc full time (38 hours/week) to work on: the role of chromosomal instability in cancer Description of the project: Approximately 70% of all human tumors are aneuploid, which strongly correlates with tumor grade, metastasis and poor patient prognosis. One of the possible causes for aneuploidy is chromosomal instability (CIN), however very high levels of CIN cause cell death. Therefore CIN is not only thought to be a…
The group of Prof. Dr. Catherine Rabouille currently has a vacancy for a PhD student full time (38 hours/week) Project description Cells react to environmental stress by forming non-membrane bound pro-survival stress assemblies that store and protect key cellular components. Recently, we have identified a novel pro-survival stress assembly, the Sec bodies that forms in Drosophila S2 cells upon amino-acid starvation (Zacharogianni, M., A. Aguilera, J. Smout, T. Veenendaal, M.van Oorschot and C. Rabouille. 2014. A reversible non-membrane bound…
