Part-Time with 65%
Salary according to TV-L E13
A position is available for a graduate student to participate in a joint project with the University Clinic of Radiology at the University Hospital Münster, Germany.
In this project, we will study MRI-based cell tracking of monocytes in a murine tumor model. We are specifically interested in local and systemic effects of the tumor microenvironment. Further, changes in cellular composition of the tumor microenvironment will be evaluated under therapy und surgical intervention. Methods will include Timelapse-MRI, surgical interventions (splenectomy), routine biochemical and immune-histochemical assays.
Within the Translational Radiology Research Imaging Center (TRIC, University Clinic of Radiology) the Translational Radiology Group is focused on in vivo imaging of tumor heterogeneity and the tumor microenvironment especially via optic and optoacoustic imaging methods. The Experimental MR group has a longstanding focus on neuro- and multimodal imaging. Together, we will perform in vivo imaging studies using Timelapse-MRI of monocytic cells in the context of tumor development.
The candidate should have a MSc degree in Biology, Physics or Veterinary medicine; ideally, prior experience MRI and very good English skills in both speaking and writing.
9.4 T MRI system (Biospec with cryoprobe), fluorescence reflectance imaging system (with X-ray); fluorescence tomography; small animal PET and small animal Micro-CT as well as multispectral optoacoustic tomography (MSOT). Extensively equipped laboratories for biochemical and histological processing as well as a small animal operating room.
