Research Technician: Treatment of radiation-induced side effects cell therapy
Functiebeschrijving Radiotherapy is an essential part of the treatment of head and neck cancer patients. However, many patients suffer from hyposalivation and related xerostomia after the treatment. In this project we want to develop a cell therapy approach to ameliorate radiation-induced xerostomia. The technician will be required to work in close collaboration with a post-doc on the project, and will carry out a range of tasks involving in vitro culturing and analysing (radiation) responses of adipose derived mesenchymal stem cells, pluripotent stem cells and salivary gland organoids. Different techniques such as tissue (co-)culture techniques, RNA sequencing, gene-editing techniques, western blotting and immunohistochemistry are needed for this.
This position is funded by the Dutch Cancer Society, KWF Grant nr12458. Wat vragen wij We are looking for an excellent, highly motivated research technician with an HLO degree or related with experience in tissue culture and molecular cell biology techniques.
