Techician Hematology



Working Enviroment

The general aims of the division of Experimental Hematology are to obtain detailed knowledge on (molecular) mechanisms that determine hematopoietic stem cell self-renewal and differentiation, with the ultimate goal to deepen our insights in the development of human leukemias. We have a specific interest in dissecting the clonal heterogeneity of leukemias and recently developed tools that allow us to identify and prospectively isolate genetically distinct clones within individual patients. Also, we have a strong interest uncovering the immune microenvironment in AML.

Job description

We are currently looking for a skilled, enthusiastic, and highly motivated art.12 technician to join our team. The technician will be responsible for our in vivo mouse studies, in collaboration with PhD students and postdocs. Besides being responsible for mouse handling, there are also possibilities to conduct specific research projects. We are highly interested in further elucidating HSC/LSC-niche interactions, and have developed humanized niche scaffold in vivo models in order to study interactions between (leukemic) stem cells and their surrounding cells, such as stromal cells and innate immune cells (see PMID: 37058562; 28456746; 27733356; 27125308).
